  COVID-19 UPDATE: October 19, 2021

We are pleased to announce that we will be increasing our enrollment capacity in the coming weeks. All spaces that are currently available, will be offered to children on our current wait list.

Full time: The toddler program is currently full and will not be enrolling any new children.

Multi-Age Preschool: This program previously known as “Nursery” has transitioned to a multi-age preschool program offering a M/WF schedule from 9-4 and a T/TH schedule from 9-4.

Open to thoughts!

The Child Study and Development Center is a laboratory school
affiliated with the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of New Hampshire.
A laboratory school is one with both an early care and education mission and an academic mission.
Children attending the center, and the UNH students working at the center, benefit from the highly trained teaching staff and from the family studies faculty.
