"The program's philosophy is based on the belief that children learn best through active exploration and social interaction within a safe and nurturing environment. Each day is made up of a balance of active, quiet, individual, and group activities along with morning and afternoon snacks, a hot lunch, and rest
Part-time as well as full-time child care is available to NIU students, faculty, and staff. Enrollment is open to the community in the preschool classrooms (3-5 years) only. Parents may schedule three to ten hours of child care per day, one to five days per week. The center is open Monday - Friday, 7:15 a.m. - 5:45 p.m. during fall, spring, and summer semesters.
