Welcome to the Indiana University Southeast Children’s Learning Center!

The Children’s Learning Center opened in June 1978 with a grant from the Student Government Association. The Children’s Learning Center is operated by the University and partially subsidized by Student Activity Fees. The Center offers a safe environment, trained staff, and structured learning activities for potty trained children ages 3 through 8.

The IU Southeast's Children's Learning Center provides quality year-round childcare and morning preschool/pre-kindergarten for students, faculty, staff and community children. We strive to promote children's health, social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth and development by providing an active learning environment.

We believe and extensive research confirms that children learn through play, active exploration of their environment, concrete experiences and peer/adult interactions. We encourage children to develop to their full potential by the use of individual, small and whole group activities.

The Children’s Learning Center facility is arranged into learning centers to encourage children to make individual choices. The Centers include: dramatic play, art and writing, math/manipulatives, science and sensory, social studies, language arts, library, blocks, computers, music, motor development and character development (STEM-science, technology, engineering, math) and outside learning/play area.
