Two Centers - One Philosophy

At Southern Oregon University, we believe in educating the whole child through engaging,  play-based experiences.

  • Experiential, developmentally appropriate learning is encouraged
  • Programs are designed to nurture the growth of each individual child
  • Play-based curriculum is guided by professional staff’s careful observation & planning
  • University students are trained as classroom assistants for high adult-to-child ratio
  • Holistic activities foster emotional, social, cognitive, and physical development
  • Children and staff have access to campus resources and enrichment opportunities

Choose the Center that's right for you!!
