"The Lab School is an important part of the Family and Human Studies department. It provides an environment for the child as well as the Family and Human Studies students and parents.
Every child is unconditionally accepted as a worthwhile individual. Children's positive self-worth and self-esteem is enhanced and fostered through positive communication and interactions with caring adults and children. Children gain confidence and independence through challenging successful experiences. Children learn self-worth as they make choices and do for themselves. Children learn to value others through meaningful play experiences. Children learn through their own experiences, through the manipulation of objects and through the imitation of others.
The teachers enhance these experiences by providing a well planned and organized environment, offering exploration, discovery, and experimentation. Children's creativity is fostered through activities that encourage spontaneous expression and representation that will expand and extend their imagination.
