The MSU Child Development Laboratories (CDL) offers programming to children eighteen months to five years of age. We offer half-day academic year preschool as well as full-day, year-round preschool.
The CDL takes an active role in outreach, welcoming practitioners from across the state, country, and world to visit the labs, sharing information about their work in supporting children's development in all domains, and modeling exemplary practice in support of children's social development. Students and Early Childhood professionals benefit by the exemplary research-driven program within which university students can observe and practice developing skills; being included in a comprehensive Early Childhood educational program, which includes integration of literacy across the domains, the use of anti-bias curriculum, and advocacy for children; being supported in his or her professional development in an emotionally safe environment; and receiving written and oral feedback.

Teachers can also complete their required number of hours for their Early Childhood Endorsement (ZS) at the Child Development Laboratories.
Community Music School
MSU's Community Music School established the Music Therapy Clinical Services to provide music therapy treatment for special-needs clients in the Greater Lansing community. Special needs that are often effectively treated by music therapy techniques are those typically arising from medical illnesses, handicapping conditions (such as developmental disabilities and physical impairments), specific learning disabilities, and aging. Services are offered in individual or group settings, as appropriate for the client's needs and abilities.
