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
