Infant and Toddler Education Lab
The Infant and Toddler Education Lab at UW-Stout is a certified childcare center for the university staff, students, and the Menomonie community. Students in the School of Education's Early Childhood Education program provide childcare for children ages 0-3. Aaron Wisecup, a senior in ECE, assists in and teaches children for nine weeks during the semester.
"We really focus on teaching the children self-help skills and social and emotional skills, like learning to share toys, take turns, and asking friends if they are hurt," Wisecup said.
Working alongside other student staff and experienced faculty, and watching the children progress gives students the necessary experience to benefit in their future teaching careers.
