Located inside a 100-year-old stone house, Hoeflin Stone House provides full-day child care services for infants, toddlers and preschool children.

History

After careful planning by several architectural students, a complete remodel of the stone house began in May 1977. It involved converting the open porch to an enclosed stairway and relining the outside stones with new cement.

Hoeflin Stone House was named in May 1983 to honor Ruth Hoeflin, who served as dean of the College of Home Economics from 1975 until 1983. Hoeflin and Dr. John Chalmers, vice president for academic affairs, were responsible for the creation of this childcare center.

A second full-day childcare facility, the K-State Child Development Center, is also located on campus and has since earned official affiliation with the university as well.
