CSI Early Childhood Education Toddler Lab

The College of Southern Idaho Early Childhood Education Program Lab School is designed to meet the developmental needs of young children eighteen months through three years of age. It provides experiences that enrich and enhance each child’s cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical, and creative development. Within the program’s daily schedule, each child has opportunities to create, explore the environment, learn problem-solving techniques, develop personal interaction skills, and learn concepts through firsthand experiences. Children are not expected to perform beyond their abilities or to meet a set of standards based on “speeding up” learning or “hurrying” skill acquisition. Children develop a positive self-concept through a balance of self-and teacher-directed activities. Staff members serve as positive role models and provide care and education that is supportive, nurturing, warm, and responsive to each child’s individual needs. We respect families as the primary and most important providers of care, nurturing, and education. We believe parents and teachers are partners in children’s care and education.
