Child Development Laboratory

THE REAL WORLD IS THE OPTIMAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

The Children's School is a model early education and care environment open from 7:30am to 5:30pm (early closing for staff training Thursdays) during the academic year, and January, June and July. We offer numerous student opportunities as a child development laboratory for the many courses that have a component of inquiry into human development and potential. The ability to observe children in their learning environments is a unique opportunity to witness developmental similarities and differences in optimal educational settings.

The hours for observation are 8:30 am to 11:30 am and 3:30 pm to 5 pm. We also offer two unpaid internships per semester. We have allocated administrative and teaching staff time to students so that their academic inquiries and research projects are assured.
