BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Illinois plans to spend $6.1 million to build an early childhood education center at Southwestern Illinois College.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1sWOXHD ) Gov. Pat Quinn announced the project at the Belleville campus Thursday. The 16,000-square-foot building will offer classrooms, a motor skills area, an observation room and an isolation room for sick children.

Quinn says the center will increase “badly needed services” for families in the area.

Quinn also dedicated the community college’s new Veterans and Career Services Center. The school says it serves about 1,800 veterans and 900 dependents.
