Child Study and Development Center

Explore the CSDC

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.

  • My favorite part of the CSDC is the opportunity to witness children's exploration of the world on their own terms and the excitement that they find in each new experience.

Curtailment Information

We will send out emails, record a new voicemail on our main line (603) 862-2835, post information on our website, and possibly even make phone calls depending on the situation (early closure) and ability to do so.

We suggest  you sign-up for the UNH Emergency Alerts to receive notifications  via text message or email as you request.

UNH Alerts

UNH Child Study and Development Center
- Winter & Storm Info -

CSDC follows UNH decisions with regard to closings or delays.  Therefore, if UNH curtails operations or delays opening, so does the center.  The best way to obtain information is to call the UNH Storm Info Line (603) 862-0000 regarding closures and delayed openings.  If UNH announces a delayed opening at the University for storm/winter related issues the decision is usually made by 4:00 am.

Our Administrative Assistant will place a message on WMUR TV Ch. 9, which will indicate when CSDC will open or if we are closed for the day.

FYI: Full-time program families can drop off a half-hour before UNH delayed opening time.  Morning Nursery will begin a half-hour after UNH delayed opening time or will be cancelled if UNH begins operations after 10:00 am.
