History

 
S l o w l y we gather in the heat, as participants in yet another of the Towson Community's "Fourth of July Parades
   

 

This Center has been "home" for many constituencies, including: children, parents, grandparents, student staff, professional staff, volunteers and observers for more than a quarter of a century.  Every participant has contributed to Towson 's shared undertaking, which celebrates social change. Only a few years prior to the Center's inauguration, the norm for women in this country did not allow them to be able to organize a life inclusive of parenting, higher education and working. 

An undergraduate student, sounding the charge in 1970, challenged Towson's assumptions and behaviors telling her Early Childhood Education professor that she was overwhelmed and felt, given her obligations, that she would never graduate. She questioned why the institution wasn't more supportive of students like her. Her professor, after listening, chose to use himself to advance his student's concerns.

Towson was an early enabler, actively involved in promoting a different way of perceiving the role of student parents and their commitment to their young. We were originally a drop in center for students children, a infant and toddler program and preschool, all based in Lida Lee Tall.
