Child and Family Research Center


The Child & Family Research Center provides a learning laboratory which supports the education and training of students in the program, college and other units on campus. The center also serves as a research site for investigations that focus on particular aspects of infancy, toddlerhood, preschool or family development. The Child and Family Research Center was the first early childhood program in the state to be accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs and has long served as a model for best practices in northern Nevada.

Support for continuous quality improvement is an important piece of the Child and Family Research Center mission. All sites participate in Silver State Stars, Nevada’s Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) for early childhood programs. In addition, CFRC staff provide coaching and technical assistance for community providers through the northern Nevada family child care component of QRIS.

The CFRC also provides intensive comprehensive child development and family support services at no cost to income eligible families with children under the age of three and pregnant women through UNR Early Head Start and Nevada Home Visiting.
