|About The School
The Children's School is an observation and demonstration facility operating
under the direction of the Child Study and
Human Development Department of Tufts University. We
welcome observation of our preschool, Kindergarten, and 1/2 classes by parents,
students, and professionals.
Observation Scheduling Procedures
Call the Children's School receptionist to set up an observation time. Please
call at least 24 hours in advance of when you would like to observe. We have
limited number of observation slots available each day. If there is a particular
classroom or age group in which you are interested, let the receptionist know when
arranging your visit. Please note that the
classroom daily schedules (PDF)
are subject to change without notice at the teachers discretion.
When you arrive at the Children's School on the day of your observation:
- Identify yourself at the front desk.
- Sign the visitors book.
- Read Appropriate Observation Behavior,
before entering the observation booth.
- The receptionist will direct you to the appropriate observation booth
or play yard for your observation. Please note that Children's School staff
members are not able to make private observation arrangements; all observers
follow the above procedure.
