Welcome to the Early Childhood Lab School—Center for Child and Family Studies. We are a research based program located on the UC Davis campus in Northern California. Our program is currently operating as a primarily outdoor program in efforts to keep children, families, and staff as healthy as possible. We typically begin and end our day outdoors; rain or shine! Like we always say, there is no bad weather, just inappropriate clothing! We are so grateful for such a beautiful space to teach and nurture our children.
