UCDC utilizes a child centered, extended family approach that is fostered by supporting the developmental needs of all children. We foster chilren's self esteem, creative abilities, sense of belonging and success, by implementing a developmentally appropriate curriculum based on NAEYC and Keystone STAR standards, through a play-based approach to learning. We support families and partner with them to provide an environment that welcomes their collaboration and supports both cultural and family preferences.
