IMPORTANT IECE UPDATE!
It has come to my attention that the city of La Verne will have numerous street closures this upcoming Friday and Saturday. The ONLY access to the university will be from Arrow Highway and "D" Street to the parking lot D entrance. We have made alternative parking arrangements to elevate the congestion expected in lot D. Please PARK IN SHUTTLE LOT S on “A” Street, just south of Arrow Highway. The shuttle will drop you off just outside the Campus Center.
If you are planning on taking the 210 to the university, exit Foothill and take Wheeler to Arrow Highway.
If you are coming from the 10 turn onto Arrow Highway as "E" Street will be closed at the train tracks.
Thursday's events will not be affected by these street closures.

When & Where
University of La Verne's Institute for Early Childhood Education
The University of La Verne was founded in 1891 as Lordsburg College. Both the college and the agricultural community were renamed La Verne in 1917, and the 1920s and 1930s found three-quarters of the student body in teacher education. Because of its long and rich tradition of excellence, the University of La Verne is recognized as one of the leading institutions engaged in the preparation of professional educators and leaders in Southern California.
The Child Development B.S. program at the University of La Verne is based on the philosophy that the emotional, social, physical, and intellectual needs of each human being are interrelated. All four areas must be valued and nurtured in early childhood education programs, for as they exercise their developing physical, sensory, and cognitive abilities, children also gain important feelings of self-esteem, competency, and mastery.
The University of La Verne’s Master in Child Development program is designed for child development professionals dedicated to bettering the lives of children. Through coursework that integrates practical and theoretical concepts, students develop the skills to assume leadership roles in all phases of the child development field.
