Abstract: The purposes of the study were the following: (1) to identify the tasks and experiences required or expected of child development majors during their period of student teaching in a university or college laboratory nursery school; (2) to identify additional tasks and experiences required or expected by supervising teachers in the training provided student teachers; (3) to determine additional tasks and experiences that each supervising teacher believes should be included in the student teaching requirements; (4) to describe and compare the various laboratory nursery school programs offering preschool student teacher preparation in universities and colleges. The subjects surveyed in the study were 100 supervising teachers in 60 universities and colleges in the United States. The survey instruments consisted of a questionnaire, which described the laboratory programs and teachers, and a checklist of tasks performed by student teachers in the programs. The reliability and validity of the checklist were not measured statistically. The data were analyzed descriptively in tabular form using percentages.
