Reopening Fall 2021

The Center for Young Children — formerly the UNT Child Development Laboratory — will open this fall for the 2021-22 school year. The center uses a play-based, emergent curriculum built on the interests, curiosities and experiences of children ages 3-5. As part of a commitment to nurture children’s divers cultural background and home languages, the center will be offering a bilingual program for children from Spanish speaking families.

The UNT College of Education is restaffing the center, and more information about the program, curriculum and staff will follow in the coming weeks.
