KRDO COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Pikes Peak State College's Rampart campus in north Colorado Springs has closed its child development center, leaving a dozen students searching for child care services. Pikes Peak's Centennial campus in southwest Colorado Springs is now taking on caring for more children; however, it's currently at capacity and is a sizable drive for parents on the north side. One mom, Meredith Bates, is a nursing student at Pikes Peak State College. Her two children would attend the Rampart campuses child care services until she was told in April that the location would be closing its doors.
