The University City Children's Center is committed to providing innovative, quality care and education to a racially, culturally, developmentally, and socio-economically diverse population of children between the ages of six weeks and six years in a nurturing environment that provides supportive services to families.
Our vision is to create a new paradigm in early childhood education that will serve as a model for creating systemic change for children and families.
University City Children's Center is a diverse, intentional early childhood community that respects and nurtures children and adults in a trusting culture of love, empathy, compassion, and joy that is guided by visionary leadership.
An integral part of our mission and practice is developing partnership and educational outreach to the larger St. Louis community.
