Child Development Center

Located on the Historic Gainesville Campus, the Brenau University Child Development Center has the unique responsibility of serving the children, their parents, the Brenau family, and prior to this health pandemic, the local community. 

During these challenging times of COVID-19, Brenau University is committed to practicing a culture of prevention and taking all the necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of all.

We have been able to meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to ensure a safe reopening of the Child Development Center at Brenau University under new conditions. In order to continue to meet the guidelines, the center will be closed to the public. We will only offer childcare to the employees of the university up to age five. Pre-K will not be offered this academic year.

A possible reopen date for the public is yet to be determined. If you need information on how to find programs in your area please contact Director Jennifer Brown at or 770-534-6107.

Please join the Brenau community in embracing a culture of prevention and follow the advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
  • Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Wear face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
  • Stay home when you are sick and seek medical attention if symptoms worsen.
  • Avoid close contact with those who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth when coughing or sneeze into your sleeve or a tissue.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces.
