Child and Family Development Center

In a collaborative effort with the Family & Consumer Studies Department, the Child and Family Development Center (CFDC) is an NAEYC accredited Montessori based learning child care center, located on President's Circle in the Alfred Emery Building on the University of Utah campus.  Since 1930, we have provided excellent care to children, quality learning experiences for families, and hands-on training for our university students as they participate in our Lab School.  

Divided into three classrooms (Infant or the "Nido" room, Toddler ("Piccolo" room) and Early Childhood ("Bambini" room), the CFDC is open to universtiy faculty and staff, as well as the community and serves ages infants through six. The design of the CFDC program and physical structure of the classrooms facilitate parent, student, and teacher education. It also provides interdepartmental research opportunities for faculty and students interested in studying young children and families.
