TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Florida State University hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly renovated Infant and Toddler Development Center.

While the facility opened in August of 2017, it's been renovated to include a new wing. This new wing is the final piece of construction of the 15,000 Square Foot Facility.

In attendance Monday was FSU President John Thrasher, Vice President of Student Affairs Amy Hect and a few FSU student-parents excited about the opening.

Shannon Staten, FSU executive director of Child Care Early Learning Programs: "We had quallity teachers and quality programs, but we didn't have a quality facility. So we needed to provide an environment that would help support the work we were trying to do in the classroom."

The state-of-the-art facility is designed to care for the children of FSU students, faculty and staff.

There is a waiting list, but any FSU parent interested can apply online or in person. For more information, visit Housing.FSU.edu.
