The Child Development Lab

The Child Development Laboratory (CDL) is a special environment designed to provide a model preschool for children, create a learning center for university students, support and educate parents of young children and serve as a research and instructional center for the University. We provide a rich variety of experiences and supports for children, inviting them to engage independently, with adults and with classmates.

The CDL serves children from 2 years 9 months to 5 years of age. There are two half-day sessions, 8:50 – 11:30 Monday through Friday and 12:50 – 3:30 Monday through Thursday. Any local family is eligible to enroll their children in either the morning or the afternoon session.
