The center is focused on program planning, teaching, caregiving, and child guidance techniques that promote development encompassing the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of each child in the program.
More broadly, EIU’s Child & Family Life Education Center (CFLEC) functions as the practicum site for University’s Department of Human Services (HSL) courses, serving families with young children by providing enrichment opportunities for growth and development.
