The Children's Center provides quality care for children six weeks to 12 years. The state-of-the-art facility is licensed and provides part-day and full-day 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 Children's Center serves as a laboratory setting for students in many departments including Human Environmental Sciences and Educational Studies. Opportunities for students to observe children’s behavior and to have practical experience in the planning and implementation of activities are provided. Professional staff supervise 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 Human Environmental Sciences. Information about fees and services may be obtained by contacting the director, Ms. Leanne Snider, 881-7715.
