Denise C. Payne
Director, FSU Children's Center
Office: 3rd Floor, Hitchins Building
Denise maintains and administers a quality pre-school and child-care environment promoting the physical, mental, and social development of children. She implements and administers an educational program that reflects the child-centered, play-based educational philosophy of the Center.
The University Children's Center is a self-supporting unit attached to the Department of Human Resources. The primary purpose of the program is to provide quality childcare for children of University students, staff and faculty while the parents participate in the University. There are a limited number of openings for parents not affiliated with the University. Children must be at least 2-1/2 years old and have independent toilet skills. Our Early Childhood Staff meet State requirements and have degrees and/or certificates in Education and the child care provider course. Complete credentials are available upon request. The Center is licensed for twenty (20) children at any one time.
