The University of Memphis Barbara K. Lipman Early Learning & Research Center was adopted as the laboratory preschool of the University of Memphis in 1959. Since then it has been a cornerstone in early childhood development in the Memphis community. Applications are accepted year round, and enrollment is offered for children ages 2-6 in a variety of demonstrations. Enrollment priority is offered in the following order: children/dependents University of Memphis full-time faculty and staff, siblings of currently enrolled ELRC students, children/dependents of full-time University of Memphis students, children of Shelby County residents. Selections in each category are decided on a first-come, first-served basis, so we encourage families to apply to the waitlist as soon as possible after the birth of your child.
