Program Quality/
Standards of Excellence

High quality early childhood education benefits children. Children who experience a quality program are more likely to have greater academic success, enhanced self-esteem and increased self-control. UHCLC aligns the program and curriculum with national (NAEYC & Cognia) and state guidelines and is licensed by Texas Health and Human Services.

Classroom Environment

We utilize multi-age classrooms to assist the overall development of the child within the family-like community of learners. The program is organized and staffed to minimize the number of group, teaching staff, and classroom transitions experienced by the child.

We believe a learning environment that fosters respect for cultural diversity and utilizes an eclectic approach to education allows for optimal growth and development of young children.

Please refer to the CLC Program Guides for classroom transition strategies and planning.

Spanish Language Immersion

At the Children’s Learning Centers (CLC) our language immersion methodology incorporates the CLC mission and the core values of early childhood education. We believe children develop at greater levels when activities include all learning domains; we know that children learn by doing, interacting, and expressing. We have four Spanish Language Immersion classrooms; two toddler and two preschool.
