Programs

Our primary goal is to support parents and caregivers in helping young children reach their fullest developmental potential. For over 20 years, parents have chosen and entrusted the staff at Union Center Daycare and Preschool for supporting both the developmental needs of their children and the needs of their families.

Families are a child’s first and most influential teacher. Because we have a common interest in your child’s well being, we acknowledge a primary responsibility to bring about collaboration between the home and school that enhance the child’s development. Our goal is to develop a partnership with each family based on trust, respect, and a shared desire to ensure the very best care and early education experience for every child. 

Family Involvement Days

Koala

6 weeks to 12 months

Our littlest of children are cared for in a small, home like atmosphere. Each child has their individual needs meet by the teachers, and follow the same meal patterns as the parents do at home. All teachers employed in this classroom have been trained in safe sleep practice, CPR, and basic first aid. Through the use of Frog Street Press, the children will be assisted on meeting their developmental milestones as the child is ready to meet those milestones.

The cognitive, physical and social skills of most rapidly developing three-year-olds are significantly different from other ages, according to early childhood brain research.

Three-year-olds are special! They are transitioning from parallel play to interactive play, and their language capacity is blossoming. They are becoming much more mobile, and they are learning to show genuine affection and concern for their peers.

Recognizing this gap, Frog Street has announced the launch of the first-ever comprehensive curriculum for three-year-olds!

Frog Street Threes provides intentional instruction in key areas of development so children ages 36-48 months can effectively continue on the path to kindergarten readiness. Key components include:

PRE-KINDERGARTEN

4 year to 6 years

In our Pre-K class we work with the Get Set for School Curriclum. ( Part of Handwriting Without Tears )We have been using this award-winning curriculum for 2 years, after looking for hands-on teaching materials and strategies that would make learning fun and easy for Pre-K students. Get Set for School features Readiness & Writing, Language & Literacy, and Numbers & Math programs that incorporate the same special ingredients to foster success. The Get Set for School curriculum teaches the easiest skills first and then builds on that knowledge. Lessons are taught in a sequence that makes sense developmentally. There is no assumption of prior knowledge. After children master the easier skills, they are ready to move on to more difficult lessons. Lessons teach a variety of readiness, writing, literacy, and early math skills including directionality, letter recognition, matching, vocabulary, rhyming, imitation, problem solving, patterns, and sequencing.

School Age

Children that attend Woodview Elementary School

Our School Agers program is for children who attend Woodview Elementary School.  The Wa-Nee School Corportation provides transportation to and from Woodview Elementary.  We serve breakfast at 7:30 am and the bus picks up at 8:05 am.  After school the children get dropped off by the bus at 3:45 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, on  Wednesdays they are dropped off at 3:15.  After school the children have a nutrious PM Snack, and then do homework.  If the weather is nice they will go outside, if it is not they have an age appropraite classroom that is designed for their needs.
