Philosophy

Picture of the preschool

The UNLV/CSUN Preschool recognizes the diverse needs ability, interests, and cultures in a setting where each child is valued and respected as a unique individual developing at his/her own rate.

We believe that each child's development is guided by a cooperative team of professionals through observation, interaction, and well-planned learning activities.

Through promotion of a curriculum that provides age-appropriate and individually appropriate activities, equipment and materials, children have many opportunities to be actively engaged in the learning process. The curriculum promotes the development of the whole child - physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually through a balanced daily schedule of individual, small group and activity based learning experiences.

We recognize the importance of working closely with families and acknowledge family involvement as an essential and vital component of the total learning process. Families are encouraged to participate in all activities within the program.
