Q. They really need more day cares in Hampstead. Do you know if they will be building a SPEC anytime soon in the area? There are no before school care, when both parents need to work.
Currently no plans are in the works to build any new SPEC facilities at this time, says SPEC Assistant Director Andrea Lankford, who said SPEC opened buildings in Jacksonville and Swansboro within the last three years.
There is a SPEC location in Burton Park, an industrial park off U.S. 258/N.C. 24 near Jacksonville, which is, at this time, the closest location to Hampstead, Lankford said.
For all SPEC locations and contact information, go to http://www.speckids.com/ or call 1-888-855-SPEC (7732).
