The Child Development Laboratories’ admissions policy is different from that of most programs because our purpose is more complex. We strive to provide quality programs for young children and their families while training students, facilitating research and serving the community and state as a model center. Our admissions policy reflects this complex role as we work to maintain a balanced and diverse child population while supporting the involvement of families who most need our services. All children are eligible for enrollment, regardless of race, religion, gender, disability or national origin. All children will be provided a full range of learning opportunities and enrichment activities unless otherwise directed by the express permission of the parent or guardian in accordance with religious practices and/or personal beliefs.
