Additional Job Information
The Child Study and Development Center is a laboratory school affiliated with the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of New Hampshire. A laboratory school is one with both an early care and education mission and an academic mission. Children attending the center, and the UNH students working at the center, benefit from the highly trained teaching staff and from the family studies faculty. Each year more than one hundred students enrolled in family studies courses at UNH use the center as a laboratory for experimental teaching and learning, and documentation of those experiences. Students from other disciplines, for example, education, psychology, occupational therapy, and communication disorders, also use the center as a laboratory for the study of children. The seven classrooms in the center are equipped with observation booths that are used by college students, faculty, parents, and visitors. These booths provide researchers with the opportunity to observe children in a natural context.
