UIC Children’s Center




The UIC Children’s Center provides full-day early childhood education services to 50 preschool children of UIC students, faculty, and staff. The children range in age from two years, nine months to six years. All children must be toilet trained.

As well as providing quality, developmentally appropriate full-day preschool services, the Children’s Center serves as a demonstration site for the constructivist philosophy developed by former UIC professors Constance Kamii and Rheta DeVries and based upon the theory of Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget.

The UIC Children’s Center is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.
