The UWM Children’s Learning Center kicked off its 50th year of serving families and children on Oct. 4.

The center has many ties to the School of Education. Over the years, numerous SOE students have worked at the center while in school, and many have joined the staff full-time after graduation.

The center’s current director, Liz Smith, is a School of Education alumna and formerly served as the School’s Early Childhood Education program director and student teaching coordinator.

Congratulations to all involved.
