Our Services Include

  • Flexible Scheduling will be offered to parents using their class schedules as a basis for their child's enrollment. Flexible scheduling allows parents to only register their child/children for the days and hours needed for class, work-study, fieldwork, or studying.
  • Professional Staff consisting of certified teachers, assistant teachers, and aides. Our center offers an early childhood education program in a homelike, multicultural environment. Our teachers plan developmentally appropriate activities, that stimulate the intellectual and creative abilities of each individual child while enhancing other developmental skills. 
  • A Resource for the College Community: The Child and Family Center is an integral part of the academic community.   It serves as a work-study, fieldwork, and observation site for interns from various academic departments.   The child care center is directly connected to student parent academic success and graduation.
