New Facebook group for those affiliated with lab schools/programs

    I have started a new Facebook group, Early Childhood Lab School Share & Support.  The group is for those affiliated with lab schools/programs to share information and seek support from one another.  I look forward to getting this group running!

    Hi! Can you share a link to the Facebook group here? I am a former lab school teacher from way back in the 80's and I am very interested!

    What a great opportunity, Amber--thanks for letting us know!

    One of my new year's resolutions is to try to find ways to build more connections between campus-based lab schools and NAEYC's higher education work, including accreditation of degree programs (who are always so appreciative of high-quality field experiences for their candidates!). If ideas emerge on the Facebook group about how NAEYC can support these sorts of connections on campus, please feel free to send folks our way or let me know how we can be most helpful.

    Looking forward to new connections in 2020!

    Wonderful! I rarely check Facebook anymore, but this might just might be my reason to jump back on from time to time.

    Hello Amber,

          My current objective is to start a lab school at my college. Would you recommend I join your group? I am sure I could learn about struggles colleges with running Lab Schools face. I am not on Facebook very often, but I am looking to learn everything I can and take all of the advice I can get.

    Thank You!

    Yes, I think it could be helpful.  I'm hoping we can all share our successes and struggles related to life in a lab school.
