ChAD Lab Preschool

The Child Development Lab Preschool is located in the center of the San Jose State University campus in downtown San Jose. We offer Toddler and Multi- Age Programming for young children 2 to 5 years of age.  Our Toddler Program is for children who are at least 2 years of age by September 1, and our Multi-Age Program is for children who are potty-trained and between 3-5 years of age by September 1 of the school year. 

Our indoor/outdoor environments provide children with developmentally appropriate experiences through play.  We support children’s social, emotional, language, intellectual, and physical development with high-quality experiences and teachable moments through our low teacher-child ratios.  Our unique programs offer opportunities to engage children in hands-on experiences that aim to develop a love for learning. Both programs have observation booths where parents, students, and members of the public can observe the program at any time and without the need to make an appointment.  Anyone interested in enrolling children with us should feel welcome to observe.  The Toddler Program observation booth is in Sweeney Hall room 117 J and the Multi-Age Preschool Program is in Central Classroom Building room 117.
