The Early Learning Program is a non-profit organization that holds the childcare license for this facility. The University and its academic departments are not directly responsible for the daily operation of the facility. An elected board of directors oversees the general operations.
Our belief is that young children will thrive through their positive interactions with appropriate role models, exposure to developmentally appropriate materials and the introduction of educational concepts in a developmentally appropriate environment. The children enrolled in our program are involved in activities, based on play, that address their developmental needs in the following areas of growth: social, emotional, cognitive, math, science, creative arts, language, literacy and physical.
We believe that it is the responsibility of all early childhood educational environments to provide, on a daily basis, challenging, age-appropriate experiences in order to foster a child's positive developmental growth.
