East Tennessee State University (ETSU) is home to 2 campus children’s centers - Little Buccaneers Early Childhood Laboratory Program (Little Bucs) and Child Study Center (CSC) - whose programs serve children (ages 3 months through 5 years) of University students, staff & faculty and the community. Little Bucs also provides a summer camp experience for rising kindergarteners through 5th grade.

Little Bucs and CSC have maintained a 3-Stars Quality rating since its inception in TN;
CSC has been accredited by NAEYC since 1989. Both early childhood programs approaches to
learning incorporate emergent curriculum and the constructivist theory, Reggio-inspired
programming, plus respectful, responsive care for young children.

Sign up to spend Friday morning, July 14th from 9:30am – 12:30pm touring both programs - they will be in full action with children! Travel in air-conditioned comfort on a luxury motorcoach. Join in a lively discussion with representatives from both Little Bucs and Child Study Center while enroute.
