Backstory and Context
The CSC was created to suit children "from 2 1/2 to 5 years of age," complete with two classrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, and an outside play area. The CSC also "serves as a laboratory for training and research in early childhood development," with students from the university from a variety of majors often coming to observe. The CSC is accredited as a child development center by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, with its most recent reaccreditation awarded in March 2018.
