Welcome! The Rutgers Psychology Child Development Center (formerly the Douglass Psychology Child Study Center) is comprised of 2 twelve-month Rutgers University preschools, sponsored and operated by the Psychology Department at 2 beautiful campus locations. The Center provides early care and education for children ages 1-5 years of age and can trace its history back to 1930. A recent collaboration with the Culture of Health Academy within the Center for Childhood Nutrition Education and Research at the Institute for Food, Nutrition, and Health has led to a program expansion and the opening of a second site. Both sites are located on the Cook/Douglass campuses of Rutgers New Brunswick.
