From the Director:
The CUMP program is based on the interest, needs and abilities of the preschool-age child. We offer an educational experience through a well-planned program that provides opportunities for children to: become aware that their own feelings and emotions are natural and acceptable. learn to express themselves in constructive ways. grow in their understanding and enjoyment of themselves and others by learning to share, take turns and play cooperatively. be active learners by exploring and organizing their world. express curiosity and wonder at all the varied and interesting aspects of life. explore new books, games, materials and activities. try out new roles through dramatic play. build a strong background of concrete experiences for language and cognitive development. All activities of the preschool are designed to be developmentally appropriate and to meet the needs of the individual child. Children's discovery of themselves and their world is very exciting. PLAY is children's work.
