The University of Chicago Laboratory Schools and 5th Ward Alderman Leslie Hairston invite community members to a public meeting on Thursday, Feb. 11 to discuss advance planning for a possible expansion of the Lab Schools’ early childhood facilities.

The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Laboratory Schools’ Large Group Room, 126 Judd Hall. Entry is through the double doors on South Kimbark Avenue, just north of East 59th Street.

As part of a proposed expansion now under consideration, Laboratory Schools administrators have identified the need for an early childhood center that would be dedicated to children from nursery school through second grade. Those children are currently spread among several buildings.

One option for locating a new early childhood center would be on University-owned land at 5800 S. Stony Island Ave. The meeting will offer an opportunity for members of the community to hear more about the early childhood program, possible design features and the sites under consideration, as well as to ask questions.
