Curriculum

We meet the developmental needs of children through indoor/outdoor activities, quiet and active times, as well as individual and group activities. These experiences include music, mathematics, language, science, computer, physical development, and social interaction. Enhancing each child's self-concept during their time in the Center is a major goal. 

We use an eclectic curriculum, including the Creative Curriculum, a research-based, nationally recognized curriculum designed to meet the developing needs of each child in our program. Our classrooms include rich and varied learning centers including art, music, blocks, dramatic play, library, sand, water, and other valuable sensory experiences.  We also use ZooPhonics, a wonderfully playful and integrated curriculum in which children learn and reinforce alphabetic skills through movement, as well as broaden their horizons through interesting learning experiences.  

You know that your children are in good hands when they go running ahead of you into the Children's Center to give their teachers a big hug. I cannot express how comforting it is to know that my children are in an environment that they love, with a wonderful group of individuals who truly care about them. They offer a fantastic curriculum for the children and are helping them get right on track for their future school years. As a nursing student at Western Wyoming Community College, the Western Wyoming Community College Children's Center has been a blessing. I never worry about my children while I am in class. The hours and the flexibility of the staff are perfect. I cannot express how grateful I am for all the help and encouragement from the Children's Center. They work hard to make sure that childcare is one thing you do not ever need to stress about while you are in school.-— Holly Blau
