Clayton Child Center, a not for profit educational and developmental organization for children from infancy through 6th Grade, includes the Infant/Toddler Center. The City of Clayton awarded the Oak Knoll building in Oak Knoll Park, Clayton, MO. to house the Infant/Toddler Program. The space had previously been occupied by the St. Louis Museum of Science and Natural History.
Mitchell Wall Architecture & Design was commissioned to develop the program and Master Plan, and then retrofit the Museum Building for educational use. The Infant/Toddler program became the first child care center to offer the state of Missouri’s “Parents as Teachers” program in a child care center.
The opening of the new Infant/Toddler Site was celebrated with a community wide lecture featuring Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, nationally noted pediatrician and author.
