The Macfeat Laboratory School, for children ages three to five, is operated by the Richard W. Riley College of Education as a training/demonstration/research facility. Macfeat is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), an organization that recognizes outstanding early childhood programs which meet national standards of quality. Staffed by professional educators with advanced degrees, graduate and undergraduate students, and numerous volunteers, the Lab School provides each child with a unique opportunity to explore, create, experiment, and build social skills through interactions with other children and caring, competent adults.
The classrooms at Macfeat are child-centered, designed with learning centers that foster independence, creativity, collaboration and discovery. The teachers and staff at the Lab School strive to meet the physical, cognitive, and social/emotional needs of each child while exploring ways to best meet the educational challenges facing parents and teachers of young children.
