The Eliot-Pearson Children's School is the laboratory-demonstration school affiliated with the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Development at Tufts University.
The school serves as a model and demonstration facility, providing a training and observation site for new and experienced teachers and a research facility for faculty and supervised students in the Department of Child Development.
First and foremost we aim to create a quality, nurturing experience for all children and their families.
In addition, as a lab program we are involved in the ongoing training and supervision of our graduate teaching assistants, student teachers and field workers.
By creating a quality early childhood experience for children, we are providing a first-hand example of excellence to our adult-student participants.
In addition, a great deal of time is spent providing further training through supervision meetings, team meetings, and workshops/discussions throughout the year.
Everyone on our staff takes professional development very seriously.
It is one of the benchmarks of excellence in this program.
