University Child Care Center

Welcome to the University Child Care Center (UCCC). UCCC provides an early childhood program for children from 2-4 years of age in partnership with the College of Education. We believe that learning should be child-centered, as we focus on arts, nature, and the own interests of the children.

UCCC is a lab school setting, which means we are a facility that allows the opportunity for research, observation, and academic interaction between our early learners and the Towson University community. Our early learners help in the educational experience of students at the University by providing the opportunity for real life application of course learning. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Observations completed in the classroom documenting the learning environment, student development, teaching strategies, etc.  
  • Professor supervised whole class interactions and reflection discussions.
  • Student staff employment opportunities.

This is a fantastic and unique opportunity for the University students, and our early learners as well. Both are exposed to a learning environment supported by teachers who are enthusiastic and full of ideas about how to engage and challenge their learning.

Who We Are

  • We dare to be different
  • We act with care
  • We play to learn
  • We carefully create physical spaces
  • We seek knowledge
  • We are in it together

The Center is open from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM at Towson University, Monday through Friday, year-round, except for University holidays and one in-service week, which is usually the week before the new Fall semester begins.

All parents/guardians of enrolled children are welcome to stop in at any time. Join us for lunch, classroom parties, or simply to observe!
