Clemson’s long-anticipated goal of having a childhood education center has been realized. This past Monday, the Early Childhood Education Center opened its doors. The Center, located at 330 Seneca Creek Road, will operate year-round and follow the University holiday and closure schedule. The Center provides childcare and early education programs for infants, toddlers, preschool, and kindergarten prep aged children.A photo of a large brown building from a parking lot

The Center will also be providing enhanced health and safety practices in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 Related Response

In the wake of COVID-19, the health and safety of guests is the number one priority, and the Center is implementing a number of enhanced protocols, including:

  • Reduced class sizes.
  • Daily health screenings and touchless temperature checks upon arrival for adults, children, and Center employees.
  • Drop-offs and pick-ups restricted to the lobby or outside.
  • Masks for teachers, staff and other adults in the Center at all times
  • Each class will operate as a “self-contained unit” and adhere to social distancing protocols.
  • Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces, toys, and laundered items.
  • Training for teachers on all protocols.
