The MCC Early Childhood Education Center: Evelyn H. Warren Child Development Laboratory is a multi-age preschool that is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The laboratory programs provide opportunities for students in MCC classes to observe and interact with young children and their families in a developmentally appropriate environment. The program is designed for children to participate in activities to enhance and develop social and verbal skills, problem solving abilities, large and small motor coordination, cognitive concepts and practical life experiences. Parent involvement in the lab is encouraged.
