Fresno's The Village Educational Center views social and communicative competence as the focal point in each child's educational experience. Using a developmental-behavioral approach to instruction and curriculum, children are engaged in productive, meaningful activities that target cooperative learning experiences for all students. A staff to student ratio of 1:6 ensures that every student receives support and encouragement whenever needed.
Our program is rooted in the following principles:
(as adopted from the National Association for the Education of Young Children-NAEYC, 1996)
- Designing activities based on a strong knowledge of child development
- Valuing the importance of families and the ties between the child and family
- Respecting the dignity, worth and uniqueness of each individual
- Helping children achieve their full potential
