The Penn State Behrend Early Learning Center provides a warm, supportive environment for children from six weeks to six years of age. Children are encouraged to explore their individuality, understand their special worth, and develop positive feelings about learning through developmentally appropriate activities. Employees of Knowledge Park companies receive priority consideration for enrollment.
