Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study
OISE's Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study (Jackman ICS) at the University of Toronto is unique in Canada, as it is dedicated to setting the highest standards for teaching and learning for children through innovative research, training, and practice. The Jackman ICS is a Laboratory School for children ages 3-12 and has a tripartite mission of bringing together research, graduate teacher education, and exemplary teaching practices to foster educational excellence.
We offer a 2-year MA degree in Child Study and Education; which includes the Ontario Elementary Teacher Certification, earned through hands-on training at the Jackman ICS, located at the Dr. R.G.N. Laidlaw Research Centre.
