Located at 210 W. Ashby, the San Antonio College Early Childhood Center is an educational lab facility for the Department of Early Childhood Studies. Students, under the close supervision of faculty and child development specialists, work with the children as they train to be early childhood educators. In addition to providing this training, the Center program is designed to provide a model quality child care and education facility for the community.
The San Antonio College Early Childhood Center is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. NAEYC-accredited programs have demonstrated a commitment to providing a high quality program for young children and their families. Adults involved in the child's life are viewed as partners in the educational process and are encouraged to actively participate in decisions affecting the care and education of the child. The program values diversity and offers an inclusive setting for children.
The Center is open to children, ages 12 months to 4 years, of qualified San Antonio College students. The program focuses on the unique ways in which young children learn. It strives to meet the needs of the "whole child" including the areas of social, emotional, physical, cognitive, creative and language development. The curriculum emphasizes developmentally appropriate learning experiences through play.
