COLUMBIA — Stephens College Children’s School will celebrate its 85th anniversary on Thursday.

A general open house will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Stephens College Children's School, 1400 Windsor St.

According to school director Leslie Willey, the celebration will feature displays about the history of the school created by current students.

"The children also have put together a PowerPoint presentation," Willey said. "It's more about what’s happened at the school today."

The Stephens College Children's School was started as an experimental nursery school group 85 years ago. In addition to educating children by professors and certified teachers, it provides an educational environment for college students.

It moved to the current location, Audrey Webb Child Study Center, in 1970.  

The Stephens College Children's School offers preschool and elementary school programs, and currently enrolls about 100 students. They are grouped by ability rather than age.

The celebration is free and open to public.
