AUSTIN, Texas — More parents are soon going to be able to take advantage of affordable daycare while they continue their education.

Austin Community College is expanding its "child watch drop-in centers." The daycare used to only be for ages three to 12, but starting next week, they're accepting children as young as 1 year old.

For a max of three hours a day, the program allows parents to pay $4 per hour for the care. The school provides the space. Parents with several kids get 50 percent off for any additional kids.

Officials with the program said this helps parents and benefits the child.
