The Hollingworth Center, a program within the Department of Curriculum and Teaching at Teachers College, Columbia University, is a service, research, outreach, and demonstration site. The Center is designed to provide internship and training opportunities for the graduate students of Teachers College, develop demonstration programs in early childhood education and primary grade inquiry based science education, and offer enriched educational services for children, families, and educators locally and internationally. Primarily concerned with nurturing the talent development of all young children, the Center maintains a special commitment to creating and implementing programs for underserved children and teachers in urban schools locally and abroad, and designing model curricula in areas traditionally neglected in primary and elementary schools. The Hollingworth Center hosts two lab schools, a preschool and summer elementary science program. Each of these signature programs has neighborhood and global partners.
