The University Child Care Center is a nature and the arts early childhood program on the beautiful campus of Towson University.
Our arts and nature programs are rooted in the ideal that the early childhood years should be full of joy, inquiry, discovery, challenge, healthy risk, and secure relationships! We believe that the earliest memories of a school environment should be full of learning experiences which stimulate all of the senses, includes ample outdoor play in our nature play scape, making mud pies, jumping in mud puddles, and climbing on rocks. We draw from the child development work of Maria Montessori, Waldorf, and Reggio Emilia. We emphasize the ideal that children are responsible and capable entities. While with us, we guide them to respect their environment and their peers while learning to meet their own needs as independent individuals.
NOTE: We have a limited number of PK4 spots available for the 2017-2018 academic year.
