TEXAS STATE CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER
The mission of the Texas State University Child Development Center (CDC) is to provide a model early education and child care program for University students, staff, faculty and the community.
Our primary purpose is to provide an environment in which children can develop intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally within a play-based developmentally appropriate curriculum under the guidance of qualified teachers and staff.
Every opportunity can be a learning opportunity.
The Child Development Center believes that children learn best in a nuturing, child-initiated, play-based environment that fosters self-confidence, trust, creativity, autonomy and acceptance of individual differences.
"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood."
