The KSU Child Development Center is a nonprofit corporation serving the child care needs of K-State students, faculty, and staff. It is fully licensed by Kansas and is professionally staffed.
The center offers full-day programs for toddlers (ages 12 months and walking through 2½), preschoolers (ages 2½ through 5), and school-age children (ages 5-12). Limited part-time program spaces are offered to families of toddler and preschool children who need regular flexible care. The center is open all year offering care Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
School of Family Studies and Human Services
This school operates two early childhood facilities. Both are licensed by the Kansas State Department of Health and Environment and accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs. Enrollment in these programs is open to members of the K-State and Manhattan communities.
The Hoeflin Stone House Child Care Center is on the northeast edge of campus. The center provides full day care for 30 children ranging in age from 18 months to 5 years. Priority is given to children of working parents. The program focuses on the children's developmental needs and interests.
The Early Childhood Laboratory on the east edge of campus hosts an interagency program with USD 383. The facility integrates children who have disabilities with nonhandicapped children, and accommodates an age range from 3 to 5 years in a part-day program.
The activities and environment at both facilities are designed to foster children's cognitive, language, social, emotional, and physical growth and development.
