SMU Child Care & Preschool Center

Nurturing care, responsive to each child's individual needs.

Southern Methodist University Preschool and Child Care Center is designed to meet the developmental needs of infants and young children (through age 5) of the University community.

We provide experiences that enrich and enhance each child's cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development. Within the center's daily schedule, each child has opportunities to create, explore the environment, learn problem solving and personal interaction skills, and learn concepts through first-hand, hands-on experiences. Children develop a positive self-concept through a balance of self-and teacher-directed activities.

Schedule a Tour

Tours of the center are offered most mornings at 9:30 a.m. by appointment only. To schedule a tour please call Liz Harper at 214-768-2278, or e-mail laharper@smu.edu.
