Drawing from the most current scientific research on early learning and brain development, and inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education, the UCDS Studio Infant Toddler Program celebrates each child as unique, competent, and ready to learn. The Studio provides a stimulating, secure environment for children to explore, question, discover and create. The arts are integrated as tools for cognitive, linguistic and social development and expression as children build understanding, make connections and foster relationships.
The Studio is inspired by children's natural curiosity and inclination to learn through play and investigation. Our curriculum is flexible and emerges from children's ideas as they experiment, question and discover. Each day children experience extended blocks of time for exploration and play as well as a group circle time, outdoor playtime, group snacks, small group time and rest time. Art, sensory, music and cooking activities throughout the week offer opportunities for children to make connections, extend learning and express their thoughts and understanding. We emphasize respect, communication, cooperation and problem solving.
