United Day Care Center believes children learn through play. Staff strive to develop a stimulating, inviting classroom atmosphere in which the children are free to explore and learn at their own pace. The teachers devote their time to supporting the learning and play of each individual child. Children learn to make positive decisions, develop problem-solving skills, learn self-control, and enhance their self-esteem all of which will have a great impact on their readiness for kindergarten and future success.
Teachers create age-appropriate learning environments that promote children to learn through play and learning centers. Activities are created based on individual needs and developmental levels. Children who are enrolled at our center are engaged in a hands-on environment that is clean, healthy, and safe. In our infant/toddler and preschool programs, teachers develop lesson plans that are based on a weekly theme to engage children. The infant/toddler lesson plans cover the following content areas: sensory, gross motor, fine motor, creative expression, literacy, music & movement, dramatic play, blocks, and small group activities. The infant/toddler teachers also create individual monthly goals for each child. The preschool lesson plans explore math, science, art, writing, large group & small group activities, blocks, dramatic play, literacy, gross motor, and music & movement.
