The Auburn University Early Learning Center (AUELC) offers classes for three and four year old children in the morning and a mixed age 3's and 4's class in the afternoon.

Head teachers generally hold advanced degrees in Early Childhood Education or Child Development and the teaching assistants are graduate students working on advanced degrees in Human Development and Family Science or another related field of study.

The teaching philosophy of the facility is grounded in the concept of developmentally appropriate practice in which children "learn by doing" and are guided by a curriculum designed to capitalize upon knowledge of how young children learn. The facility also maintains a research mission and is designed to maximize opportunities to conduct developmental research on children and their families.
