Thank you for your interest in the East Tennessee State University Child Study Center. Our program is available on a first-come, first-served basis to children between the ages of 3 months and 5 years; however, priority is given to siblings and applicants affiliated with ETSU. To be placed on the waiting list, the attached application and a $25 non-refundable fee is required.
The Child Study Center (CSC) currently offers 3 program options:
- Infant Program, serves children ages 3 months to approximately15 months. Tuition for this age group is$865.00 per month ($200.00 per week). The yearly supply fee is included in this monthly amount. ETSU-affiliated families receive a $25 per month discount.
- The Toddler Program serves children from approximately 15 months to 36 months. Tuition for this age group is $835 per month ($193.00 per week). The yearly supply fee is included in this monthly amount. ETSU-affiliated families receive a $25 per month discount.

The full-year/full-day program operates from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, with the exception of major holidays and professional development days for our teachers. Tuition includes a morning and afternoon snack.
Applicants to the Programs will be notified of their acceptance when an opening becomes available. If contacted about an opening, you will have 48 hours to respond to the offer. After that time period, the opening will be given to the next applicant. Upon accepting the opening for your child, there will be a $200.00 non-refundable tuition deposit assessed to secure the space. This fee will be applied to your first month’s tuition. Starting dates for new children are determined by the Center.
If an offered opening is declined and you wish to remain on the waiting list, a new completed application will be required with a $15 non-refundable re-application fee.
On the first Thursday of each month at 9 a.m., a Prospective Family Orientation is offered to those who are interested. To sign up for this opportunity, call the CSC office at 423.439.4888.
