Piper Center for Family Studies and Child Development
The Piper Center for Family Studies and Child Development serves as an innovative model of early childhood education for Baylor University, engaging with children ages eight weeks to five years and their families as well as faculty, students, and our community in a supportive, family-like atmosphere.
This page houses information about our waiting list, tuition and fees, daily schedule, nutrition, and other topics that may be beneficial to families considering enrollment in the Piper Center.
Information about research conducted at the Piper Center, helpful documents for students enrolled in CFS lab courses, and narratives about the ways instructors across campus utilize the university’s lab school can be found here.
The Piper Center offers a variety of ways for family members to be involved in the child's school community, to participate in family activities, and to confer with the staff to build a strong bond between home and school.
As a university laboratory school, research is a fundamental component of the daily work conducted at the Piper Center. Our team of educators seek to facilitate and highlight research conducted by our faculty members, students, teachers, and children alike. We feel called to illuminate the critical nature of early childhood care and education as well as the significance of family life through inquiry, observation, and analysis.
