Child Development Lab School still has openings for summer, fall

Year-round preschool provides nurturing environment for community

Chicago (June 16, 2006) – Saint Xavier University’s Child Development Laboratory School still has positions open for summer and fall classes for children ages 3 to 5 years old.

The lab school provides a nurturing, safe environment that is child-directed, inquiry-based and play-centered. Located at the United Methodist Church of Mount Greenwood, 11000 S. St. Louis Ave, Chicago, the school offers full-day preschool services for children of the community as well as students, faculty, staff and alumni of Saint Xavier. 

“We help teach children how to become lifelong learners by engaging them in the types of activities that foster relationships with others, provide hands-on exploration and follow the children’s own interests,” said Kelly O’Brien, lab school director.

Open year-round, the lab school utilizes Creative Curriculum, a play-based developmentally appropriate plan of activities for preschool-aged children that focuses on the environment. Programs are available from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily with a choice of two-, three- or five-day schedules. A one-time annual registration fee of $35 is due with application.
