The fundamental purpose of the University of Nevada, Reno Child and Family Research Center
(CFRC) is to provide a learning laboratory that supports the education and training of students
in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies and other units on campus.
The CFRC is a research site for investigations that focus on particular aspects of infancy,
toddlerhood, preschool or family development. The CFRC serves the early childhood
community as a model for early care and education best practice in northern Nevada.
