Child Development Center at JSU

Thank you for your interest in JSU's expanded Child Development Center.  The center will serve the children of JSU students, faculty & staff, and the community.  Although we have not finalized tuition, the proposed rates are extremely competitive with other centers in the area. The center will follow the JSU calendar for 12-month employees and will be open from 7:30 am - 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. We plan to open the expanded center in August of 2022.  It will be located at the former Kitty Stone Elementary School near the JSU campus.  We will have one classroom for the following age groups. The number in parentheses is the enrollment maximum for each age group:
Infants (8) 1-year olds (12) 2-year-olds (12) 3-year olds (16) We have applied for two Alabama First Class Pre-K grants and should hear about them soon.  Each of those classrooms will have 16-18 children and will follow traditional school hours of 8:00 am - 2:30 pm.  We will offer extended care for the Pre-K children from 2:30 pm - 6:00 pm and summer care for additional costs.  For anyone interested in the Child Care Development Center for the above ages, please fill out this interest form. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
