The Jeanne M. Canelli Child Development Lab offers quality early childhood education to preschool-age children for Framingham State College and surrounding communities. The Child Development Lab also serves as a teaching laboratory for college students interested in teaching young children and conducting research in child development, psychology, and sociology. The development of the whole child is fostered here in the lab, and emphasis is placed on meeting the needs of each child in a literacy-rich environment. We take advantage of our location on a college campus to enrich our curriculum with participation in programs and special events held on campus.
The Jeanne M. Canelli Child Development Lab offers programs during the school year (September through June). During the academic year, we follow Framingham State University’s schedule for vacations and holiday closures; however, the Child Development Lab continues through the middle of June. Below are links to the tentative Child Development Lab calendar for the 2013-2014 academic school year and the University calendar.
