Uno Dos Tres Academy follows a Developmentally Appropriate Philosophy, our program is guided by the needs of the children that it serves. Children are taught in a manner that matches the way they develop and learn. Children are challenged just beyond the level of their present ability and are given opportunities to practice newly acquired skills. Along with opportunities to learn Spanish through play and social interaction, children will naturally acquire a strong interest in the Spanish language.
Following are the five guidelines for Developmentally Appropriate Practice that Uno Dos Tres Academy follows;
Create a caring community of learners. UDT values the exceptionality of every child, teacher, and family. To create an enriching environment all parties must maintain open lines of communication.
Teach to enhance development and learning. UDT incorporates an equal balance between child-centered and teacher-lead methodology.
Construct appropriate curriculum. UDT adjusts themes, incorporates new materials, and creates environments to enhance each child’s full potential.
Assess children’s learning and development. UDT recognizes the importance of child centered assessments. Teachers place their efforts in aiding the overall cognitive, social-emotional, physical, and mental development of each child.
Establish mutually beneficial relationships with families. UDT recognizes and appreciates the uniqueness of every child and family, acknowledging and honoring individual cultures, traditions, and parenting styles.
