The Family Learning Center, which opened in early September, serves the children — aged 6 weeks to 6 years — of faculty, staff and students. The grand opening festivities included tours of the center, refreshments and an art activity. The center is located on North Campus and is administered by Bright Horizons, which manages more than 700 child-care centers for universities, corporations, hospitals and government agencies.
