At the Indiana University Campus Children’s Center (CCC) we believe that young children learn best through their direct interactions with their environment combined with the people within it. The adults in children’s lives are key influences for future life success and at Campus Children’s Center we strive to develop strong, collaborative relationships with each family with our combined focus on the optimal development for their child. Our curriculum, Foundations to the Indiana Academic Standards: Birth to Five, is dynamic in that it changes with the interests and needs of the children and reflects our belief that the whole child must be developed across the curriculum with social & emotional emphasis to support all aspects of development.
The CCC welcomes the enrollment of all children regardless of race, religion, gender, disability, or national origin.
The CCC is licensed by the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration and is enrolled in the Indiana Five Star Environmental Recognition Program.
