Child Study Center

Since 1965, the Child Study Center at UCO has provided half-day programs for 3-and-4-year-old children. The program also supports the education, training and research efforts of UCO students and faculty by offering observation experiences while also providing valuable learning experiences for young children and families. The Child Study Center is open to children of UCO faculty, staff and students as well as children from the metro community.
