Margaret N. Perry Children’s Center
The Margaret N. Perry Children's Center provides quality care for children of UT Martin students, faculty and
staff, and community members. Student-parents are given first priority, and children with special needs are included
at the center.
The state-of-the-art facility is licensed and provides part-day and full-day care for children six weeks to 12 years of age.
The children's center also serves as a laboratory setting for students in many of UT Martin's academic departments including family and consumer sciences and educational studies. Students observe children's behavior and gain practical experience in the planning and implementation of activities. Professional staff supervise these students as they plan developmentally appropriate activities and curricula. The academic components are supervised by the director in cooperation with other UT Martin faculty. The children's center is administered through the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences. Information about fees and services may be obtained by calling the director, 881-7715.
