philosophy of Little "U" Learning Center is based on a
set of strongly held beliefs:
- 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.
believe parents are the most significant adults in a child's life.
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.
