Prospective Families

Teacher and child work on iPad

The UW Child Development Lab serves a diverse population of University and Non-University affiliated parents at our building on campus in the School of Human Ecology.

We offer a 42 week academic year program and a nine week summer program for children 6 weeks-5 years. The summer contract is optional for some families. Children in the 3-5 year-old mixed age classrooms have the ability to opt out of one or more 3 week summer sessions by paying a required holding fee. Some families of preschool-aged children can enroll a child for just the summer, if space is available. We also offer 4K programming for children who turn 4 by September 1.  We are a community partner 4K site with the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD).
