The Children's Village is located at Building A in the Vista Del Monte apartments on campus. The Village is an expansion of the Dove Learning Center in O'Donnell Hall and is expected to host around 300 children at its full capacity. Currently, about 50 children are cared for at the Village.
The Village has taken the Early Childhood Education program to a new level. All faculty are now located at the Village and this facility will serve as an additional lab school for students studying Early Childhood Education. Students will study under the expertise of master teachers and have access to faculty on-site. The Children's Village is expected to grow to full capacity within the next year, dependent on funding.
