As a laboratory preschool, the Oxnard College Child Development Center offers Early Child Development college students the opportunity to observe the classroom’s interactions and have hands-on experiences to blend theoretical with the practical, integrating knowledge with experience.

Conveniently located on-campus, college student observers and student teachers can do the following:

  • Integrate theory, research, and practice while learning and practicing the latest developments in the field;

  • Develop skills in observation, assessment, teaching, and research; and

  • Learn and practice collaboration skills with the Center’s administrators, teachers, and parents.
