Parent Council

The MSU CDL is proud to support the Child Development Laboratories Parent Council.  The schedule of meetings, events and contacts is available by clicking here.

The CDL Parent Council was created to promote parental/guardian involvement in their children's socialization and educational experiences. We do this through activities and events such as: the Autumn Social, the Ice Cream Social and most importantly through volunteer opportunities at the CDL. The Council also supports the educational programming for children and adults through raising money to fund various additional services and items such as: creative movement classes, additional or special materials for the classrooms, potential scholarships, etc. 

They meet once each month from September through April (except December).  The time and location may vary and often alternate between the East Lansing and Haslett CDL's.  All parents/guardians are encouraged to attend and participate as much as your schedule allows.






CDL Parent Council Volunteer Opportunities

There are many volunteer opportunities at the CDL that can fit your availability.  Different types of Parent Council positions are available, each requiring varying degrees of time commitment as well as one time volunteer opportunities.  Support the MSU CDL and your child's growth and learning through volunteering through: classroom volunteering, the CDL Library Cart, hosting/putting on the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon, volunteering for special events and fundraisers.
