ELRC Mission 

Mission Statement

The mission of University Schools is to provide the children of our community with educational experiences that enhance their development from birth to graduation and promote dynamic research, collaborative partnerships and innovative practices.

The University of Memphis Barbara K. Lipman Early Learning & Research Center is the laboratory/demonstration pre-school of the University of Memphis. Its purposes are to provide developmentally appropriate programs for children two through six years of age, to demonstrate best practices for students preparing for careers working with young children, to facilitate research opportunities, and to model educational leadership to the larger community.
