Children’s Center

Children listening to teacher reading

Welcome to Boise State University’s Children’s Center

The Center was established in November 1979 to provide a quality child care program for the children of full and part-time Boise State students, faculty and staff. To further advance campus and community relations, alumni and community parents may enroll their children if space is available.

Our professional staff provides a model educational program for all the families it serves. Students from University Academic and Technical school programs and students from the Colleges of Education and Health Sciences are assigned to the Center for internships, field methods, and volunteer work. We also serve as an observation site for University students fulfilling class requirements.
