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.
