Child Development Center

Shaping young minds for a lifetime of success is the core goal of the Child Development Center while also providing quality child-care services to full-time university students and employees to help them balance work, school and family.

The CDC provides children, from ages 3 months to 5 years old, a variety of diverse and creative learning opportunities in a caring and nurturing environment.  We also focus on the whole child, taking into account all your child’s developmental needs – physical, social, emotional and cognitive.

AT THE CDC, WE:

  • Offer full-time care between the hours of Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
  • Provide children with breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.
  • Implement the High Scope Infant and Toddler Curriculum and the Big Day Scholastic Program as part of the CIRCLE curriculum, which focuses on the development needs of the children and new concepts and skills in early literacy, math and science.
  • Help Pell-eligible, low-income student-parents pay for child-care services thanks to a U.S. Department of Education Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) Grant.

NOTE: Enrollees must be university-affiliated faculty, staff and/or students. Due to limited capacity and funding, priority is given to students.
