Teacher Reading to Children on DeckWelcome to the Child Development Lab at Humboldt State University!

The Child Development Laboratory (CDL) is a special environment designed to provide a model preschool for children, create a learning center for university students, support and educate parents of young children and serve as a research and instructional center for the University. We provide a rich variety of experiences and supports for children, inviting them to engage independently, with adults and with classmates.
