BACKGROUND: The UNH Child Study & Development Center
began in 1929 as a laboratory for child development classes in the
Home Economics Department. Since those early days with six children
in a small campus building, CSDC has grown to incorporate state-of-the
art programming and facilities as a center of excellence within
the Department of Family Studies and the School of Health and Human
Services. The mission of the CSDC has three parts: providing a laboratory
teaching site for UNH students, offering opportunities for child-focused
research, and providing early childhood education that promotes
children's development and supports families.
