The Mount Saint Vincent University Child Study Centre (CSC) was founded in 1976 and is a licensed, not-for-profit child care centre. The centre is nestled behind the Seton building on the MSVU campus, which is situated on the unceded land of the Mi’kmaq people. We are committed to providing high-quality, inclusive, accessible, and culturally responsive child care for young children aged 18 months to 5 years. We strive to create an environment that allows each and every child to reach their full potential, by inspiring wonder and creativity in all children.
