The Children's Center, located in Honolulu, offers a full-day child care and preschool program for up to 125 children, ages two through five in one of seven classrooms. As part of the University community, the Children's Center is a site for students, faculty, and the community members to observe good practice in early childhood education and conduct research. The Center's mission is to "provide quality early childhood education services that represent the best of current practice for students, faculty, and staff, and also to provide training and educational experiences for the development of competent and nurturing teachers/caregivers of Hawai'i's young children and those who will be working with families." The most unique program feature of the University of Hawai'i at Manoa Children's Center is that families come from all over the world to study, research, and/or work, and thus the population they work with is very diverse. The Center is committed to modeling a quality multicultural early childhood program, which reflects the most current research in each area of expertise, with diversity a characteristic of the staff and families.
