WKU Child Care Centers

Program Philosophy

The WKUCCC philosophy is based on the premise that all children share needs and that children benefit from a comprehensive developmental program to meet those needs.  The WKUCCC program maximizes the strengths and unique experiences of each child.  The family, the principle influence in the child's developmental, is invited to be a direct participant in all aspects of the center.

 

Approach

WKUCCC offers an educational program that utilizes an individualized, child-centered, problem-solving approach to learning.  Children are encouraged to learn through play, exploration, experimentation and active involvement.  WKUCCC utilizes the Creative Curriculum for infants, toddlers and preschool children.  We also use the High/Scope cognitively-oriented curriculum as an important resource used in planning this program.  WKUCCC offers experienced, well-trained staff, low child-teacher ratio, developmental and health screenings.
