Children & Family

The UT Lab School is a play-based, hands-on discovery oriented program. It is designed to meet the individual needs of the children and reflect their emerging interests while supporting their mastery of new abilities.

Observation & Training

In our mission to help people understand, appreciate, and apply the science of child development, we have several learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. Master Teachers supervise and mentor students from our department, Human Development and Family Sciences, Early Childhood Education, Special Education, Clinical Psychology, and across several domains.

Research & Community

Our faculty and staff provide over 20 hours of training to early childhood educators in the community, annually. We also house about 6 research projects per year. We have many learning and research opportunities for educators and researchers.

Philosophy

Our play-based and hands-on discovery oriented program is designed to meet the individual needs of the children and reflect their emerging interests while supporting their mastery of new abilities.
