Child Development Lab


Welcome to Child Development Lab!

As a university-based laboratory program, one of our important goals is to train Tech students majoring in early childhood / early child special education, child and family studies, and other academic disciplines such as music therapy, nursing, and psychology. We strive to exhibit the highest standards and best practices in child care and early education professions.

  • The laboratory setting provides additional experiences for children through age-appropriate activities provided by teaching/practicum students.
  • The children of the CDL spend their days in a socially stimulating and language rich environment where learning occurs through play-based developmentally appropriate curriculum.

For more information about our programs for young learners, please feel free to make an appointment for a tour to help answer any questions you may have regarding the CDL. We maintain an “open door policy” at all times.

We look forward to meeting everyone and working closely with each of our families and prospective student placements.
