Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe children at UNM Children's Campus learn best through:
¨ hands-on activities and play-inside and outside
¨ music, movement and fantasy play
¨ real life experiences such as field-trips, walks and visitors
¨ an environment that offers opportunities and choices that build independence
¨ a child-centered environment in which the children have ownership of, and responsibility for,
constructive, guiding and trustful interactions with their teachers
¨ open-ended questions
¨ a safe environment provided by consistency and predictability of routines and boundaries
¨ teacher/family collaboration and communication
¨ a staff that respects and understands the different ways in which children develop
¨ family-style dining, which encourages language, social awareness and fine motor skills
¨ teachers who facilitate their engagement, expand their experiences and who challenge and stimulate them
