The deepest reservoir of energy on the Rollins campus isn’t found in a molecular experiment or in a dorm room stash of Red Bulls. It’s here at Hume House, the new state-of-the-art home of the Department of Psychology’s Child Development & Student Research Center (CDC). For proof, simply step outside to the playground, where undergraduates look on as preschoolers whiz around a butterfly garden and scurry inside a wizard house. This frenetic game of chase is just one example of the real-world education taking place at the only laboratory preschool at a private liberal arts college in Florida.
