The Rutgers Psychology Child Development 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. Both sites are located on the Cook and Douglass campuses of Rutgers New Brunswick.
