State set to cut aid to day-care center

The state plans to cease subsidizing a day care and early-education center at the Lemuel Shattuck Hospital campus in Jamaica Plain, and the center’s board is scrambling to save the 44-year-old program.

The state recently notified the board it plans to shutter the state-owned building that houses the Shattuck Child Care Center on June 30, 2014, because the facility is deteriorating. Without that building, which has provided the center with free space, the state cannot ­afford to suppoort the center, officials said.
