Our Third Teacher

In keeping with our Reggio-inspired approach, we think of the environment we provide for our students as their "third teacher." We are very intentional in creating a highly-interesting, age-appropriate space for them to explore and learn from.

Learning From Our Environment

Our environment at UDCC is amazingly rich, from the bustle of our U-District neighborhood to the wonderful history in the walls of our beautiful University Heights Center building to the natural environment of our playgrounds on which we spend so many hours to the intentional design and stimulating set up of our classrooms. Our amazing surroundings play an integral part in the development of our students as they set their own course of discovery and growth.
