Providing educational programming for children

We offer an innovative, inclusive and quality educational experience for children age 12 months through 5 years old. Children are assigned to classrooms based on age, developmental needs, application date, teaching and research requirements and available space. Our lab is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

Training early childhood education students

Part of our mission includes providing a premier teaching model for students pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in early childhood education. Students gain real-world, hands-on learning and research experience within the lab as they combine theory and learning with daily teaching practice.

Conducting interdisciplinary research

Research projects topics include child growth and development, curriculum development, assessment and screening, effective instructional practices and literacy development.

Raised garden beds project

Thanks to the generosity of the Bobby and Claranne Hayes family, children now have the opportunity to plant, harvest and eat from their very own gardens. We have partnered with the Department of Nutritional Sciences to create recipes and teach lessons to the children.
