We believe that children learn best in environments principally suited to their ages and stages of development as they develop a strong, healthy sense of themselves. With these things in mind, we carefully consider all available information when creating classroom groups. Teachers work together, expending great effort and mindfulness to create inviting environments in which each child can recognize his or her place, and feel ‘at home’, away from home. The schedule, organization of materials, lighting, and activities support the needs of the children in that group. Even the group’s name (young 3s, 3s, 3/4s, and 4/5s) supports and defines them, and sustains openness and authenticity about who they are. Children feel welcome as members of the group from the first day of school, and move from one stage of development to the next in a progression that supports their individuality. UCWNS offers two optional after school programs from 1 - 2:30.
