Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The staff at UUM Preschool provides a setting that will encourage each child to develop his or her own unique talents and abilities, and to grow in interpersonal relationships and communication skills. The preschool environment will encourage each child to develop a positive self-concept and provide varied experiences that will allow each child to:
develop interest and joy in learning
have feelings of security
develop self-expression and self-control
develop responsibility and initiative
expand fine and gross motor skills
develop sensitivity and appreciation of others
grow cognitively while encouraging curiosity, autonomy, and creativity
develop language abilities in speaking, listening, and appreciation for written communication
explore the natural world and have respect for the environment
make a successful transition from the home to a preschool setting
UUMP believes that all children are children of God and the expression of religious beliefs and cultural attitudes is welcomed as an opportunity to enrich the personal and spiritual lives of the children.
