The TSC Raul J. Guerra Early Childhood Center is an educational lab facility for the Division of Health Care, Career and Technical Education (HCCTE) at Texas Southmost College and can provide quality care to 232 children, infants to preschool. The lab school was established in the early 1970’s as a campus lab school for the Child Development program; the facility has been in continuous operation for over 30 years and has been licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services since 1982. Today, the TSC Raul J. Guerra Early Childhood Center is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and meets the criteria set by the Workforce Solution Cameron, Child Care Management, Texas Rising Star (TRS) Program to be rated as a â€œFour Starâ€ facility. We are excited to be able to announce that the Texas School Ready Certification System (TSRCS) has recognized the centers’ preschool classrooms as Texas School Ready! â„¢
Since the center serves as a teaching and training laboratory for students in the Child Care and Development (CDEC) Program as well other programs within the division, students are able to utilize the laboratories to observe and participate in developmentally age-appropriate activities. The lab school operates year round and provides settings for co-ops, internships, and clinical opportunities and serves as a resource and training site for Early Childhood Programs in our region.
This website is designed to provide you with information on the services the campus lab school offers. Tours are always welcome and we are available to answer any questions you may have.
