Child Learning Center

Welcome to the APSU Child Learning Center

The Austin Peay State University Child Learning Center serves children of APSU students, staff and faculty as well as children in the community. The Child Learning Center is located in the Sexton building on Eighth Street and serves children from 2 to 5yrs of age. We also have emergency drop-in care for school age children. Parents are encouraged to visit the center prior to making a decision to enroll their child.


The Child Learning Center enhances the growth, development and performance of APSU students and other parents by maintaining a campus children's center whose primary objective is to promote the continuous well-being of the children and adults it serves through programs and services that meet their social, emotional and cognitive needs.


The Child Learning Center believes that children learn through play. Play is the avenue through which children learn to reason, develop language, gain social skills and naturally learn to deal with the world around them. We feel our role is to provide children with the opportunity to play and grow as individuals.
