University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee

Program Goals:

Although our styles and approach to curriculum may look different, program goals in every age group include:
  • Fostering social/emotional growth by providing children with a secure and loving base.
  • Helping children develop a positive self-concept and respect for individual and cultural differences.
  • Aiding the development of language; self-expression; cognitive, gross and fine motor skills.
  • Encouraging the development of self-help skills which satisfy the children's increasing need for independence and control over their environment.
