Welcome from the Director
Welcome to the Child Development Laboratory! We are so excited that you are interested in our program.
Feel free to make an appointment for a tour and to answer any questions you may have. We maintain an “open door policy” at all times.
As a University based laboratory program, one of our important goals is to train students majoring in early childhood/ early child special education, child and family studies, and other disciplines such as music therapy, nursing, and psychology. Therefore, we attempt to exhibit the highest standards and best practices in the child care profession. The laboratory setting provides additional experiences for children through age appropriate activities provided by practicum students. The children of the CDL will spend her/his day in a socially stimulating and language rich environment where learning occurs through play-based developmentally appropriate curriculum.
We look forward to meeting everyone and working closely with each of our families and prospective student placements.
