The Center for Young Children Set to Open 4th Classroom in January 2024

The University of North Texas Center for Young Children (CYC) is excited to announce the opening of its 4th classroom in January of 2024. The CYC serves families with children ages 3-5, offering both full and part-time care options. The building is conveniently located in Mean Green Village and includes a large, indoor play space for music and movement, STEAM exploration, and a well-stocked children’s reading area. The property also features a shaded nature-based playground where children can explore a stone riverbed or play on a wooden bridge, as well as a traditional playground with a climbing structure, large sandbox, and outdoor stage and musical area.

The Center for Young Children falls within the UNT College of Education and is a model school for programs throughout the DFW metroplex. In addition to providing high-quality preschool programming, this school also serves as a research center and training site for university students. There are fully equipped play therapy rooms as well as spacious observation booths where students learn under the supervision of the College of Education faculty, certified teachers, and other specialists.

The CYC uses a play-based, emergent curriculum built on the interests, curiosities, and experiences of the children they serve. One classroom might be delving into the mysteries of the human body, while another explores all forms of transportation or studies how plants grow. Work is proudly displayed throughout the school, and in the Dual Language room, you will see examples of learning in both English and Spanish.
