Welcome to the 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.
The Children's Center is located on campus and serves student families, faculty and staff families and Palouse Region community families. Children age 6 weeks to 6 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 University of Idaho Children's Center is accredited by NAEYC The National Association for the Education of Young Children, the leading membership association for those working with and on behalf of children from birth through age 8.
