About the Provider

Description: el that we have created a dynamic and yet gentle learning community. Our teachers utilize a theme approach in planning a curriculum and environment that encourages self-discovery, hands on manipulation of materials, and activities that are meaningful and appropriate for young children.

Regard for children’s development in all areas (social intellectual, emotional and physical) is the heart of our philosophy. Our daily program schedule incorporates many opportunities for children to acquire and build skills in these areas.

UHP Parent Cooperative provides a high quality child initiated program, which is stimulating and safe in a developmentally appropriate environment for young children.

We are justifiably proud of our school’s program, underlying philosophies and dedicated teaching staff. We believe our preschool offers an important first learning experience for young children. Our international population provides many opportunities for learning about and encouraging a natural interest and respect for a diverse range of cultures.

Our school’s small size, home-like setting and mixed age grouping further encourage a supportive familial environment. We find this environment conducive to building a strong self-concept and a positive introduction to life long learning for the children.

As a parent cooperative, we value a strong home/school partnership and give families many opportunities to take an active role in all aspects of our school including: working with professional staff in the classroom, program support and evaluation, center/family social events, and policy making.
