About Our Research

The Ben & Maxine Miller Child Development Laboratory School provides opportunities for child and family researchers to work with 150 children ages 6 weeks to 5 years and their families. We offer research access to children and families, excellent observation facilities in the classrooms and separate research rooms for individual interviews, testing, or small group work. Please review our research guidelines, and contact us if you have any questions about the suitability of your project for the Human Development and Family Science children’s school.
