Child Care / Child Development Labs

Children coloringLCSD offers child development labs at each of our four high schools. Each classroom serves as a Teaching Lab for high school students who earn high school and college credit while they learn how to manage a classroom, plan age and skill appropriate activities for the children, and actively work with the children in individual and group settings while being mentored by the Lead Teachers. Teachers with extensive education, training and hands-on background in Early Childhood Education work in the classroom to provide the early learning curriculum and guide high school students in their practicum work.
