Early Childhood Education Students

University faculty and Center staff supervise all university students participating in the Center.  For early childhood students, the Center serves as a training site where they have the opportunity to observe a repertoire of teaching techniques, language activities, and the planning of appropriate developmental practices for young children.  These students are an integral part of our program, offering many exciting opportunities to the children in our program, including individual attention and commitment to the young child’s needs.

As a university laboratory facility, the Center sometimes participates in research activities involving good early childhood practices.  Parents will be notified in writing when any research activities are conducted.
