Lab School

It’s All About the Children

While your children are enrolled with us they will be provided a warm, loving environment in which they can feel confident and secure. They will receive a quality educational program designed to stimulate and enrich their physical, social, cognitive and emotional development and needs. The time your child spends at the ACC Lab School is an important part of his/her life. It is to the benefit of all concerned if we (teacher and parent/guardian) work as a team to provide your child many opportunities to learn.

The Lab School is maintained by the ACC Child Development & Education Department and serves two principle functions:

  1. A teaching laboratory for college students who are preparing for careers in early childhood professions
  2. Providing a developmentally appropriate educational setting for young children

The Lab School is licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. The Lab School operates on the ACC calendar and as a full day, full year program for children, 18 months to 5 years. Care is available to ACC students, ACC employees and community families.  Parents who are ACC students have priority enrollment.
