The philosophy of Little "U" Learning Center is based on a set of strongly held beliefs:

We believe...

  •  that each child is a unique individual. We are sensitive to a child's social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs. We provide developmentally appropriate programs that focus on the process of learning and help children enjoy successful experiences. We encourage not just learning, but the love of learning.
  • in providing a physical environment that is safe, clean, healthy, and oriented to children.  Classrooms are arranged to offer challenging play and learning choices at a range of developmental levels. Activity areas allow children the opportunity to explore, to experience, and, most importantly, to succeed.
  • that the strength of our program is in the dedication of our teaching staff.  We support our teachers with training, resources, and freedom to create a unique learning experience for children. We provide many opportunities for teachers to share ideas and grow professionally. Our teachers create a caring and nurturing atmosphere and foster each child's creativity and positive self-image.

  • in positive methods of discipline.  We establish consistent, age-appropriate limits to help children function in their world. Our programs are designed to develop in children a sense of independence and responsibility. We desire to strengthen each child's own cultural identity, while instilling a respect for others who might be different.
  • We believe parents are the most significant adults in a child's life.
    We strive to create mutual respect between parents and teachers: a partnership for the benefit of the child. We encourage daily communication between parents and center staff. Our doors are open to parents at all times. Little "U" Learning Center is an organization that values people: the children in our care, their parents, and our employees. We continually work to earn the trust placed in us. We strive each day to be the best provider of early childhood educational services in every community we serve.
