Early Childhood Learning Lab

Our Mission

The mission of the Florida Southern College Early Childhood Learning Lab is to provide a safe, nurturing and engaging early learning environment that supports all learners and creates a foundation for children to be able to enter Kindergarten as life-long learners and critically thinking citizens.

About Us

  • We serve children ages three to five.
  • Children must be potty trained.
  • Low student to teacher ratios.
  • Strive to meet the needs of all learners.
  • Provide a safe nurturing environment to support the whole child.
  • Research-based curriculum and instruction.
  • Build family relationships through open communication.
  • Community and FSC campus collaboration


Children learn naturally through play. Children are natural explorers who investigate the world around them through play and high-quality interactive experiences. Our curriculum is child-centered and supports the needs of all learners socially/emotionally, cognitively, and physically. Each classroom is designed to provide the students with opportunities to explore and investigate the world around them, while providing a solid foundation to enable them to be “Kindergarten Ready.”
