The Fernald Center is located on the north/central part of campus. This center is used primarily for faculty recruitment and retention with an average of 95% faculty families and 5% staff families. There are no student families at the Fernald Center. Because the Fernald Center is our smallest center (average of 60 children), they do not have a kitchen. Fernald families are asked to bring in their children's lunches each day; breakfast and an afternoon snack are provided. The Fernald Center has 4 classrooms (one infant, one toddler and two preschool).
