Vanderbilt Visits The Monkey’s Treehouse

Vanderbilt University and the Little Learners Lab at Vanderbilt’s Peabody College are scheduled to be at the Monkey’s Treehouse, Wednesday.

The mission of Peabody College is to enhance the human condition, with a particular focus on children’s learning and development.

“At the Little Learners Lab specifically, we are working hard to better understand early development in hopes of discovering ways to optimize children’s school readiness in the areas of language and science,” said Amy E. Booth, PhD, Professor of Psychology. “We want to connect with families about opportunities to participate in our paid -and fun – studies.”

Monkey’s Treehouse staff and Vanderbilt are formalizing a partnership which will include educational workshops for parents of children up to 8-years-old, including “parenting in the digital age” and “making the most of early reading.”

“This is an opportunity for us to build our relationship with our community,” said Jackie Wiener, Monkey’s Treehouse Owner. “We look forward to working with Vanderbilt and Peabody to enhance the lives of our parents and their children.”

The Littler Learner’s Lab initial visit to The Monkey’s Treehouse is scheduled for Wednesday, 9 a.m. to noon. The Treehouse is located at 91 Seaboard Lane, Brentwood, TN 37027.
