Early Childhood Development Center (ECDC)
ECDC owns its origins to the Ahfad kindergarten which was established in the early seventies. It developed into a semi-autonomous Center within the university in 1993, providing facilities for the care and education of children in the age group 30 months to five years to serve both the staff of AUW and the neighboring community. ECDC also provides a setting for practical training and research facilities for university students in early childhood education and related fields, as well as training opportunities for kindergarten teachers from outside the University. The Centre also provides information on issues related to child development.
