The Children’s School provides Cabrini students with the opportunity for observation. In addition, early childhood education majors are assigned to the school for student teaching and field work experiences.
Education students eligible for the work study program are encouraged to apply for positions as aides at the school to gain valuable first-hand experience with young children.
As the laboratory school for Cabrini University, the Children’s School provides young men and women majoring in early childhood education an opportunity to observe, do class assignments, and student teach under the guidance of the Children’s School’s experienced master teachers.
Students in the Movement for Children class come weekly during the semester and offer gym to our children.
A wide variety of developmentally appropriate games and movement exploration activities are introduced. These are enjoyed greatly by our young players.
- Education majors plan several events at the Children’s School each semester. In recent years, these have included a Harvest Festival, a hop-a-thon to raise money for differently abled children and a Family Game Night.
- Early childhood majors also come to the School to develop lesson plans, observe, and learn about play-based assessment and the parent and community involvement aspects of our program.
- Other Cabrini connections include National Library Week Activities at The Holy Spirit Library, weekly swim lessons for our kindergartners at the Cabrini pool, presentations at the biology lab, and architectural scavenger hunts on campus.
