R. Kirk Landon Learning Center
- Early Education Center for Georgia Tech Faculty, Staff and Students
This learning center is a NAEYC accredited early care and education center that offers high quality early education for children from 6 weeks to 5 years old. It is located on 1015 Tumlin Street, and because of its close proximity to Georgia Tech, the primary clients are Georgia Tech faculty, staff, and students. This center is part of the Bright Horizons Community, but it was specifically founded by a generous donation from Kirk Landon, a Georgia Tech alum. The center provides a highly stimulating environment, teaching music, dance, and language classes. Children enrolled in Kirk Landon Learning Center are nutritiously and intellectually nurtured as they interact with other children their age in a safe environment.
