Welcome to the Child Care Center

At SMU Child Care Center we recognize how important beginnings are in each child's development. We offer exceptional early education that inspires discovery, builds community and celebrates the joy of childhood. Our teachers are nurturing and passionate child development professionals who love and understand children. Parents can be confident and secure that their children are well protected, and classrooms are clean and safe at the SMU Child Care Center. We follow stringent health and safety guidelines and our staff all comply with detailed background screening requirements. At the SMU Child Care Center you can trust that your child and your family will learn, grow and thrive in a community of joy and discovery.

The Center operates Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. We offer tours to perspective families on Tuesdays and Thursdays after 9:30am. Please call or email the center to schedule a tour for your family. If you have questions, please contact the Center via email to childcare@smu.edu.
