We care for and nurture young children of student parents so they may pursue their studies knowing their children are in a safe environment that promotes life–long learning. We capture and extend childrens natural eagerness to learn so that it is not lost or dampened by drill, rote or other mind-numbing practices. For young adult students, we provide an extension of the classroom that allows hands–on, learning opportunities to develop professionally.
We believe that children are, by nature, curious and eager learners. We believe that young children learn best when they experience their environment first hand in play. It is their direct experience in the world with the people, places, and objects at hand that spark their innate desire to "find out", "figure out", or otherwise solve problems that present themselves through the course of everyday events. The teachers provide the expert guidance and support for "knowing" how things work and how to successfully live in the world with self and others.

Florida State University purchased property at 612 S. Copeland Street in 2016 in order to expand childcare services on campus for students, faculty, and staff. The center opened Fall semester 2017. The existing building, built around 1950, contains unique architectural features and was renovated from office spaces. The center was designed specifically for children. The program will open an addition to the building in Summer 2018.
