The Early Childhood Center Lab School on the campus of Tunxis Community College provides a quality program for preschool children and is a model lab school for the Early Childhood Associate degree program. It is staffed with qualified and experienced early childhood professionals, and serves children ages three to five years old (non-kindergarten enrolled). The Center is among a select group in the nation accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and licensed by the State of Connecticut. The Center is open to children of students, staff and members of the community. Staff members believe that young children learn best through hands-on experiences, and meaningful interactions in a carefully planned environment. The goal of the staff is to encourage the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development of children in a safe and nurturing environment.
