Children's Center

The University of Idaho Children’s Center offers a child-centered program in Moscow, Idaho. The best learning environment is one that honors each child. The feelings, thoughts, customs, and lifestyles of each child and family are validated by those that care for him or her.

Located on the Moscow campus, the Children's Center serves student, faculty, staff and community families. Children age six weeks to six years old are welcome at the Children's Center.

Choices are offered, and decisions are respected. Teachers are facilitators, rather than instructors. We encourage independence by fostering self-help and decision-making. These processes lead to positive self-esteem.

The Children's Center is accredited by The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the leading membership association for those working with and on behalf of children from birth through age eight.
