Gulu Gulu Preschool and Afterschool Program: 1845 Armand Drive (Infants - Preschool)
3 months -2 Years
Infants grow and learn every day. Gulu Gulu provides a safe and nurturing “home away from home” where infants can explore and make daily discoveries. Our professional staff offers you a daily report on how we meet your child’s individual needs for nutrition, rest, and changing situations. Our goal is to build up the foundation for your infant to develop trusting relationships.
We offer a nurturing, safe, and comfortable learning environment in a home-based setting for your little ones to grow and thrive together.
We offer the benefit of building social skills in a varied and diverse class setting where teachers do not evaluate any child based on their age, but rather their own developmental progress. Our goal is to set up ongoing, trusted relationships between teachers, students, and parents where our next generation may have positive physical, cognitive, and mental growth.
Our philosophy is that children develop at their own rate and in their own way, and learn best through play. We believe that it is critical to set up a classroom environment that is interesting and appealing so that each time a child comes to Gulu Gulu, he or she finds an activity that is new, interesting and age appropriate.
Our environments are divided into developmentally appropriate learning areas. As children play in the environment, they have numerous opportunities to interact with materials, peers, and adults. We believe that, with a stimulating home-like environment and nurturing and enthusiastic teachers, the children will leave at the end of the day having learned more about themselves and the world around them. Teachers will provide a relaxing and fun atmosphere for children so that they will build up their academic interests.
Our teaching curriculum is also based on the Whole Child Theory. We focus on emotional, social, moral, and physical ways for children to experiment with and develop their innate love of learning and discovery with new skills, so they can gain confidence and motivation from their emerging abilities.
