About us

Mission

UCC Weekday School is a ministry of University Christian Church. UCC WDS creates a partnership of growth and development for children, parents and staff. Our mission is to create life-long learners through a developmentally appropriate learning environment that meet the needs of children on an individual basis and promotes curiosity and exploration today and into the future.  

 Our educational philosophy is to help young children become lifelong, enthusiastic learners. This philosophy, based on the sound research principles that undergird the premium preschool programs in the nation, is guided by the criteria for developmentally appropriate practice as established by the NAEYC, the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Within a framework of knowledge of developmental stages of children ages 0-5 years, we provide activities in all major areas of learning. (language, literacy, math, social studies, physical development, art, music, and personal/social skills. Lesson plans and activities are based on the importance of the whole child.
