Mini University-Wright State University

  • Mini University believes children learn best by doing. Through "play" experiences during the day, a child learns about the world.
  • The teacher's role at the center is to teach children by setting up the environment to allow learning to take place.
  • Children are given opportunities to explore the environment using a "hands on" approach.
  • Teachers provide the materials that allow children to make discoveries.
  • Our emphasis is on the "process" a child goes through and not the "product" or what he/she makes.
  • We also believe fostering each child's sense of individual worth is of the utmost importance.
  • Mini University programs promote positive relationships among all children and adults.
  • Children who see themselves as highly valued and respected, feel secure, get along better with others and are more successful in learning and life.
  • Mini University programs foster and enhance all children's development in the following domains: emotional, cognitive, language, aesthetic, physical and social.
