Child reading


Enrollment in the Lab School is open to the public.

As a program of the University of Minnesota, we provide equal access to and opportunity in our programs, facilities, and employment without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

We operate on the University of Minnesota semester calendar. Enrollment is for the entire academic year. Once admitted, we expect a child to continue until they’re ready for kindergarten.

New families

Due to group size and space limits during the COVID-19 pandemic and our transition through unification with the university Child Development Center, we are not accepting new family applications for the 2021-22 school year until further notice. Please complete this form to be notified if enrollment opens to new families during the 2021-2022 school year. 

School tours are suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic. A virtual tour will be posted here when construction on our new location is complete.

Current families

We give enrollment priority to children currently attending the Lab School and their siblings.Current families will receive enrollment information for the next school year in mid-January. A $200 per child non-refundable enrollment fee is due upon enrollment.
