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.

Upcoming events

Transition to Kindergarten

Mark your Calendars! Our annual Transition to Kindergarten event is coming up on Thursday, November 11th from 8 – 9 p.m.  We will feature 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 your child make the transition will be discussed and resources will be available. Some public and private schools will be offering short video clips about their schools so you can learn more about them.  

While this event will be most relevant to families with children going to kindergarten next year, all CDLS families are welcome to attend.
