University Child Care Center at Laurel Heights

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to our center! Our expert teachers are dedicated to fostering your child’s early education and strive to provide an inspiring environment to learn and thrive. Our children’s library includes a check-out option, and the Growing Readers nook is the perfect spot to curl up with a good book. The outdoor classrooms and gardening boxes encourage an interest in the environment with nature-inspired activities, and our spacious, park-like playground has plenty of room to run, play, and socialize. Would you like to learn more? Come in for one of our parenting seminars and to meet our staff.
