The Rosenwald Center for Families and Children serves as an innovative education and research model laboratory school for faculty and students of early childhood behavior.  Rosenwald Center accepts children ages 2 through 5, and is a place where the children, their parents, and the community participate in extension and research activities in human development, nutrition, health, and agriculture that promote healthy living and development of critically-thinking citizens.

The program is committed to providing high quality, developmentally appropriate early education and care in an inclusive multicultural environment while using a holistic approach to include the entire family.

The Rosenwald Center for Families and Children:

  • State-of-the-art facility
  • Highly-qualified staff
  • Quality, developmentally appropriate programming for children in an enriched University environment
  • Family educational opportunities from KSU Land Grant Program Extension Personnel on nutrition, foods, human health, and the environment
  • Innovative teaching and research setting for faculty and students, where with parents’ permission, children can participate in research where student and faculty observe childhood development, nutrition habits, and human health
  • “Thursday Night Learning Experience at Rosenwald” offers workshops and seminars, as well as a light dinner, with information on gardening, insects, honeybees,  workforce preparedness, healthy eating, emergency preparedness, management of family resources, and many other topics

The Rosenwald Center for Families and Children is driven by our core desire to be the best child care facility in Kentucky. This is summed up in The Rosenwald Philosophy and attested to by our current Accreditation.
