UADC Values

Each child is a unique individual with her or his own style of learning and a rich background of experiences.Children learn best through hands-on, contextual, and interactive experiences within a rich environment.Children’s future life success is grounded in social-emotional literacy.Children learn healthy ways to express themselves through exploration of the arts.Children who have opportunities for unstructured, outdoor play are better able to concentrate, think critically, and self-regulate.Each individual has a unique and valued perspective.Working collaboratively enriches our shared community.Compassionate, respectful, and honest interactions among adults allow all staff to reach their fullest potential.Purposeful and continual professional development ensures a high-quality learning environment year after year.

Each child is a unique and special person with individual strengths and needs. Children learn best through hands-on, interactive experiences within a rich environment and developmentally appropriate opportunities to make choices regarding their learning experiences. These interactive learning experiences are taught through play-based lessons. The Educator is responsible for providing necessary guidance and support within the context of play.

Through social/emotional lessons, children have the opportunity to learn how to solve problems and make appropriate choices. The goals of teaching social/emotional lessons are to assist children in making healthy choices for themselves and their peers. In addition, UADC strongly feels that a child who is proficient in the social/emotional realm will find greater success within their academic future.

Open communication between parents and Educators is essential to a quality early childhood program. Parents are encouraged to help Educators identify their child’s ever-changing and ongoing needs to help plan for valuable learning experiences which will best meet these needs.

We are committed to an anti-bias approach to curriculum. Educators facilitate the exploration of diversity among individuals and families and support and encourage children as they learn to value diversity.
