General School Mission

"The OSU Child Care Program was founded on the belief that high quality early care and education benefits the growth and development of the youngest children in our University community, as well as their families.
Therefore, we strive to provide a secure, nurturing and stimulating environment that enhances young children's:
recognition of themselves as persons of value
understanding of individuals who are different from themselves
respect for themselves and others
development of self-regulation
creativity and imagination
critical thinking skills
joy, wonder and knowledge of their world "
