Children's Campus at SF State

The Children’s Campus (CC) opened in January 2009 with a three-fold mission: to provide high-quality care and education for 68 infants, toddlers, and preschool children of SF State faculty/staff and the community; to offer on-site work, observation, and internship opportunities for SF State students from a variety of disciplines including child and adolescent development, consumer family science, education, kinesiology, and psychology; and to support faculty and graduate student research that aims to improve best practices in early care and education and child development theory. The Children's Campus is staffed with highly qualified early childhood professionals. The center is supported by an Advisory Council of parents, faculty, and staff.
