• Herricks High School Early Childhood Education Lab School
    The Friendship Garden


    Thank you for your interest in setting your child up for lifelong success by providing
    him/her with the opportunity to have a safe, nurturing, and high-quality early education
    experience. This opportunity is unique because your child will learn and grow with high
    school students who take the Child Study Practicum as a course selection. These
    students are interested in pursuing careers within the field of Education or Family

    Our Early Childhood Education Lab provides a year long nursery & preschool style

    experience, where volunteer children from our community are taught and led by high
    school students. These secondary students are supervised and guided by a certified
    classroom teacher.

    Our class meets on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10:30-11:45 am from
    September to early June. This program is free of charge.

    If you are interested in having your child become one of our volunteer
    participants, please read the following information prior to completing this application.
