The CSL offers a variety of early education classes for young children:
- Two Year Olds
- Three Year Olds
General Information. The children attend either morning or afternoon with the youngest children (15-30 months) attending with a parent. The average enrollment per class is 16 children and each class is taught by a master teacher who is assisted by four to six undergraduates who are enrolled in an upper-division psychology class. Enrollment is open to the community. The CSL is licensed by the Arizona Department of Health Services.
A Typical Day at the CSL includes a variety of developmentally appropriate learning activities. Structuring the environment and planning activities for self-directed play and learning is a fundamental part of the CSL’s educational program.
Curriculum activities include pretend play, open-ended creative and sensory experiences (painting, sand and water play, modeling clay, collage activities, etc.), construction activities with blocks and manipulative toys, mathematics and language games, gardening, and cooking and science activities.
The program also includes daily teacher-led group times during which the children gather for creative movement activities, musical experiences, stories, and films. A snack is also served each day during class.
Our older preschool classes also have access to the many rich and varied resources of a major university. Our program includes walking field trips to the museums, libraries, and centers on ASU’s campus. We also have occasional special activities from such departments as music, art, education, nursing, athletics and architecture.
Please note: age refers to the age in years and months the child will be as of September 1 each year. For example, if the child's 3rd birthday is in April, then he or she would be 3.4 in September: 3 years and 4 months.
