Child Development Lab Virtual Tour

Child Development Lab

Online enrollment for the Child Development Lab for the 2023-24 school year begins Wednesday, February 22, 2023 at 6:00 pm at rps.digitalsignup.com.  A non-refundable deposit is required to register and is applied to the total cost of tuition.

This program is located at Rockford High School and teaches preschoolers to become successful learners through cooperative experiences, problem solving and play, while training high school students enrolled in child development and life skills classes, to become potential educators.  Preschool children have many opportunities to learn independence, make decisions, develop creativity, and practice social and kindergarten readiness skills.  The activities are planned with care using the High Scope curriculum.  This quality approach to early childhood education has been developed through research and practice over 50 years in Ypsilanti, MI.

Classes meet 2½ hours each Tuesday and Thursday morning or afternoon for three year olds, and Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning or afternoon for four year olds. We do not offer a sibling discount. All of our staff are trained in CPR and first aid. Visit us on Facebook.

Mission Statement
Our activities are planned with great care and thought. We use current research on child and brain development, as well as the guidelines set forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, to plan and sequence each day and the entire school year.
