40th Anniversary Commemoration - Cyert Center for Early Education - Carnegie Mellon University

The Cyert Center for Early Education's 40th Anniversary Commemoration

The Cyert Center (formerly CMU Child Care) is currently celebrating its 40th anniversary, and we want YOU to be a part of it! We're planning special events for current and alumni family & friends on April 21st, June 9th, and August 10th, 2012. Check this section of our website often for important news and information regarding these events.

You can join our Facebook group to receive the latest updates about what's happening and to connect with other current and former families. Please email Lindsay with any questions or comments.


The 40th Anniversary offers an opportunity to celebrate and give back to a community dedicated to young children and their families. Three events are being organized by the Parent Educator Committee to honor the Center’s history, to celebrate the present and to lay a foundation for the future. You can support these events by volunteering, attending and/or supporting fundraising initiatives. The money raised will support the program in three ways:

  • The building of an outdoor studio on the larger playground
  • Support professional development opportunities for Center Educators
  • Environmental updates and improvement


We welcome your support and hope to see you at one or more of the events!




The August Event for current families will be announced in the coming months.



Paver Bricks

·       The floor of the Outdoor Studio will be made from paver bricks. As an opportunity to create a permanent memory honoring the time that your child attended the Cyert Center, you can purchase a brick and have it engraved with your child’s name. This will be an ongoing fundraiser. Monies raised will be dedicated to the further development of the outside studio.
