1) USF Family Center - The center opened its doors to serve the children and families of the University of South Florida staff, faculty and students in 1998. It now welcomes affiliate and community children. The center earned NAEYC accreditation, the mark of quality. In each classroom, from infants to Pre-K, highly skilled teachers provide the environment and experiences from which children learn and grow. Its mission is to provide a caring and nurturing environment where children can learn and develop. The USF Family Center is conveniently located on The University of South Florida campus.

2)USF Preschool for Creative Learning - The Preschool for Creative Learning (PCL) is a partner of the University of South Florida College of Education’s Early Childhood Education Program.
