  • Summer Lab Invites New Students to Earl Shapiro Hall

    Posted March 31, 2016

    Summer Lab 2016 would love to welcome the newest and youngest "..youngest members of the University of Chicago's academic community." Moms and Dads of incoming N's are heartily encouraged to take a look at the Nursery School classes offered at Earl Shapiro Hall. These are continuing part-and-parcel of the Summer Lab experience. Many families have chosen this opportunity for their little people to come aboard for a preview and early test-drive of what will soon be their new home away from home. Come to real Lab classrooms with real Lab teachers! Check out the premises as an excellent fun place to be, to meet new friends, to experience some time away from Mommy and Daddy, maybe their first such time. "Morning" and "Full Day" options exist, for six weeks or three weeks. Days can go even longer into the afternoon by way of Sports Camps offered between 3 and 5:30 pm. Summer Lab 2016 welcomes one and all, Lab students and non-Lab students. So cousins and neighbors can join in, too. We look forward to seeing you. Questions are welcome at 773-834-7766; more information on-line at
