"The staff of the Yuba City Unified School District Child Development Programs believes in providing a safe, clean and healthy physical environment for children.
We feel that children develop a healthy and positive self- image through participation in a variety of activities that promote success and fun. Social skills are developed as children are given opportunities to cooperate, share and negotiate. Verbal skills help them articulate their needs. We believe children learn to respect and appreciate others, including those whose cultures are different from their own.
We understand that children develop an understanding of language through various verbal and nonverbal experiences. We feel that creative experiences, such as art, music, dance and role-playing, help children develop self-expression. In providing a balanced curriculum, we feel that we are helping the child develop in all areas
We believe that all children are eager to learn when given developmentally appropriate opportunities. Children are provided an environment to develop positive attitudes toward self, others, and school through activities that provide explorations and build self-confidence, independence, and responsibility necessary for future success in school and in life
