The Children’s Centre is located on the University of Nigeria campus, at the corner of Jamie Brooks and Obukpa Roads. Though it is the project of a voluntary association, it is part of the University Master Plan. The building housing the Centre forms part of the alumni contribution to the University endowment plan.
The Centre is housed in the Madam Hulder Iwuanyanwu Building, donated by Chief (Dr.) E. C. Iwuanyanwu, an alumnus of the University of Nigeria, in memory of his mother. The building consists of two wings separated by an open courtyard. The south wing houses the library, with a large reading room and a workroom.
The north wing consists of a hall for activities and meetings, a suite of two offices and a computer lab, a kitchen, and two clubrooms housing the Psycho-Educational Testing Service.
To the west of the building is the area for playground facilities and sports fields and courts. Current facilities include the Chukwudi Tobenna Douglas Azikiwe children's football field and three climbing gyms moved from the original playground site. Current developments include University provision of a multi-purpose asphalt court for basketball, tennis and other ball games and an animal forest of play sculptures.
In 2009 the pavilion was re-constructed at the permanent playground site and named in memory of Uju Ubagu.
The area to the north of the building is reserved for future expansion, for instance, building of a youth recreational hall, while the south side of the building is for parking.
