Child Study Development Center (CSDC) - is a laboratory school affiliated with the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at UNH. A laboratory school is one with both an early care and education mission and an academic mission. Children attending the center, and the UNH students working at the center, benefit from the highly trained teaching staff and from the family studies faculty. Each year more than 100 students enrolled in family studies courses at UNH use the center as a laboratory for experimental teaching and learning, and documentation of those experiences. CSDC has a sliding fee scale and priority enrollment for children of UNH employees.

PARTIAL LISTING OF ACCREDITED NAEYC* FACILITIES
NOTE: This list only contains the accredited child care facilities in the nearby area and their proximity to the Durham campus. It is not intended to list all accredited facilities in New Hampshire.
*NAEYC has developed a set of quality standards that center-based, part-day preschools, and Head Start pre-kindergarten programs must meet to receive accreditation. Receipt of accreditation indicates that an early education program provides a high quality learning environment for children that exceeds the threshold for quality set by licensing requirements. Programs must complete a self-study, submit an application, and have ratings verified by an NAEYC validator. For more information, and addtional centers for other communities, please visit NAEYC.
