University Presbyterian Preschool is a half-day early childhood program serving 2-5 year old children. The preschool provides a safe and nurturing environment while promoting the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of young children.
UPPS is staffed by highly trained, nurturing teachers who truly enjoy working with young children.
Each of the classrooms is set up to have a low teacher to student ratio.
Two's ratio = 1 : 5
Three's ratio = 1 : 6.5
Four's Ratio = 1 : 8
Five's Ratio = 1 : 9
As part of the curriculum, each of the classes has a music class twice a month and Creative Movement once a month.
The following goals have been established for the preschool:
To encourage children to develop good self-concepts
To promote concern for the complete child: emotionally, socially, intellectually, and physically
To provide opportunities to develop each child's uniqueness while providing an opportunity for the child to function well in a group
To engender excitement about participating in school and for learning
