Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Preschool is a magical time where children are informational sponges. Decades of research have unequivocally proven children learn best through hands-on discovery, verbalization, dramatic play and meaningful exploration.

At UDA Creative Arts Preschool, we understand learning is meant to be fun. We adhere to age appropriate practices for preschoolers and include the basic building blocks for success.

We provide a rich environment of hands-on learning, carefully balanced between teacher and child-directed discovery. Children are diverse and learn in different ways, so we offer an individualized approach to education. Offering a wide range of varied instructional strategies including multi-sensory learning and thematic units helps us to incorporate individual learning styles. We encourage and allow children to discover, explore and even get messy!

Our expertly trained teachers observe and record learning patterns and styles; teaching strategies are then adjusted and individualized to meet the needs of each child.

Teacher observation and child progress are communicated regularly to parents, helping them become an active partner in their child’s education.

Our carefully-designed curriculum, with emphasis on the creative arts, encompasses Utah’s Early Childhood State Standards and ensures kindergarten readiness. Dance, creative movement, voice/instrumental music, art, creative play, reading, writing, math and science provide balance for a well-rounded education. Our thematic social studies program works in harmony with academics and makes each week a unique and exciting adventure.

We specialize in developing the whole child and promote values such as kindness, empathy, courage, responsibility and good manners. Learning these things, in a loving and nurturing environment will build the strongest foundation for academic, social, emotional and physical strength.
