About Us

Providing excellence in the care and education of young children.

 

Welcome to our nationally accredited early childhood program within CSN's Department of Education, located at the North Las Vegas and West Charleston Campus. The ECE Lab offers programs for children age 6 months through kindergarten, and functions as a laboratory observation and practicum site for students studying Early Childhood Education and related fields.

PURPOSE & PHILOSOPHY

The ECE Lab provides participants with education and resources that focus on the unique period of early childhood, and provides students, participating parents and the local ECE community opportunities for educational observation and practice. Administered with thoughtful respect for each person's uniqueness, a shared commitment to build positive relationships, and guided by the principles of developmentally appropriate practice, the program provides children and adults with rich learning experiences to foster all areas of development and education.
