Infancy is a time of vast cognitive and motor development. The staff at Urban Explorers Preschool are here to nurture your child through this amazing process. Each caregiver in the infancy program will have three infants in her/his care. This will allow your baby to get the one-on-one time he/she needs. Cribs will only be used for napping and infants will be given lots of nurturing playtime that includes story time, floor play and music.
Toddlers are nature’s great explorers, and the teachers at U.E.P. have the experience to channel this natural curiosity into learning opportunities that promote growth in all developmental areas. With our free-flow classroom and low teacher:child ratio of 1:4, for children 12 – 24 months, and 1:6, for children over 24 months, your child will have room to explore and receive the attention that a growing toddler thrives on.
To make the education in our preschool program enriching for all students, the curriculum used will be based on the principles of emergent curriculum, which is spontaneous and responsive to the immediate interest of each child. The top priorities of the U.E.P teacher are to keep all students actively engaged in their education and to be flexible to the needs of each child.
