Parent education

The Child Development Laboratory School has a Parent Educator on staff. We offer informal parent discussion groups during the day and evening, as well as occasional opportunities to hear “experts” speak on topics of interest.

A parent library is located in the main lobby with a variety of books that can be checked out.

The Directors and Parent Educator are available to discuss parenting concerns on an individual basis.


Transition to Kindergarten

Our annual Transition to Kindergarten event was on Thursday, November 11th from 8 – 9 p.m.  The event featured an information session with a panel of wonderful guests, including two kindergarten teachers, a Lab School parent with children that have gone onto kindergarten, and a CDLS multiage preschool teacher. School choice, school readiness, and helping children make the transition were discussed and resources from some public and private schools were provided.

For public and private school resources, please see the Transition to Kindergarten site.
