About the Provider

Description: PHILOSOPHY -- At University Heights, we believe children learn best in a loving environment, which offers active involvement with hands-on experiences, many opportunities to make choices, and activities that build independence and confidence. Every child develops at a different point along a growth continuum. Our developmentally appropriate program reflects the diversity in each child's growth and development. Our open-ended curriculum allows each child to achieve his/her highest potential. We work together with families to provide a safe and friendly place for children to develop learning and life readiness skills that prepare them for challenges ahead.
