Child Development Laboratory School

1830 Bldg - (714) 992-7069 

The Child Development and Educational Studies Laboratory School has been in continual operation since 1959 and is an important component of the Child Development and Educational Studies Department and Social Sciences Division. The Lab not only provides a quality educational environment for pre-school aged children and their families, it also serves as a training and demonstration school for students interested in the fields of Child Development and Early Childhood Education.

The Lab is licensed by the Department of Social Services, and funded in-part by the State Department of Education. The center serves families without regard to sex, race, religion, ethnicity or sexual preference and makes every effort to accommodate children with varying abilities.

The Lab School is open year round, Monday through Friday, 7:30 am-6:00 pm, but is closed for specific campus holidays. All children in attendance receive a nutritious breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack.

There is typically a waiting list to attend the Lab School. Preference is given to Fullerton College students, faculty, and staff; however, families from the community are strongly encouraged to apply.
