UEC-Educational Day-Care Systems: The First Comprehensive System of Early Childhood Education and Day Care Designed Especially to Strengthen the Role of the Family in Helping Children Prepare for Success in Life.
UEC, Inc., Washington, DC.
UEC-Educational Day-Care Systems provide the first comprehensive program of early childhood education and day-care designed especially to strengthen the role of the family in helping the children prepare for success in life. The educational components are based on more than 150,000 observations of children by learning specialists and parents. These tested educational methods are designed to assure that children will build personal self-confidence, that parents will learn how to guide children to maximize their potential, and that family ties will be strengthened through meaningful learn-play experiences involving all members of the family. Comprehensive child-development programs are based on an expansion of UEC's Discovery Program, which has proven successful with more than 3,000 preschool children in five Northeastern states, and a model system designed for four Pennsylvania counties under contract with the Pennsylvania State's Department of Public Welfare. More than 1,800 clearly stated learning objectives and more than 3,600 learning task activities enable parents and learning staff to assess a child's skills and concepts and provide him with individualized learning assitance.
