Student with childThe Ann Campbell Early Learning Center offers both observation and hands-on in-classroom training opportunities for students of MTSU, Motlow, and other nearby universities.

We schedule training opportunities in one hour blocks throughout the week, from 8:00-11:30 and 1:30-4:30.

We have two inclusive classroom programs located at:

206 North Baird Lane
  • For children from 12 months to 4 years of age.
  • All classrooms include children with and without disabilities.
  • Hours are 7:30-5:00 Monday through Friday.
820 Fairview Ave, Room 120
  • The ACE Learning Center program at the Fairview Center is the Yellow Room for children with and without developmental delays, ages 4 to kindergarten.
  • Hours are 7:30-5:00 Monday through Friday.
  • To enter the Fairview site, you will need to ring the doorbell to enter the Yellow Room. If no one is available you will need to be buzzed into the Child Development Center wing of the Fairview building.
