The Stephens College Children’s School opened as an experimental nursery school in 1925. The school provides college students at Stephens College with the opportunity to gain experience teaching and interacting with children while providing a research-based education for the children enrolled in the school. The school moved to its current location at 1400 Windsor St. in 1970. The school holds both college classrooms and three children’s classrooms with observation booths. The school offers either full or half-day preschool for students 3 to 5 years old. Children with early intervention needs are co-enrolled in Columbia Public Schools Early Childhood Special Education Department in order to provide for such needs. The elementary program is organized by ability level rather than age, engaging students in literacy instruction, mathematics, science inquiry, social studies, art, physical education, foreign language and music. The school also offers before- and after-school daycare services to students.
