University Child Development Center

  • The University Child Development Center exists to encourage and support each child to grow to his fullest potential in all areas of development, thus creating a positive self concept and a realistic opportunity for success in life.
  • Teachers work with children individually and in small and large groups, identifying their strengths and helping children to identify positively with each of their individual differences.
  • An "extended family" concept has been adapted to provide a framework for the Center.
  • We feel this to be the most effective model, since the traditional extended family - providing support, encouragement, and assistance to its members - has become practically obsolete in today's society.
  • For working parents and student parents, support, encouragement and assistance are vital in helping to ensure personal and professional success.
  • For children, the extended family provides all the healthy components necessary for successful development.
  • The dynamics of the "family" and its interactions perpetually serve to establish and/or reinforce the identity of self and of that self within an ever changing, ever challenging world.
