 The UofM Barbara K. Lipman Early Learning & Research Center is a laboratory preschool affiliated with the University of Memphis which offers a unique learning environment, a nurturing place that encourages children to explore their own active learning abilities. Here they are guided by specially trained teachers and are supported by community.

Here children engage in creative questioning and problem-solving. They learn to understand and share with each other. They form interpersonal communication skills. And they discover and expand their world through a truly interactive environment.

Learning, teaching, growing. Here children get the wings they need to go further and achieve a higher success in life's many lessons to come.
