If you are wondering if your child will be known, listened to, and respected by their teachers, you have come to right place. 

If you understand the importance of a play-based environment that meets the developmental needs of your child, you have come to right place. 

If you are looking for a professional teaching staff that is reliable, educated in the field of Early Childhood Education and provided with professional training and excellent benefits, you have come to the right place. 

If you feel the heart of a child’s experience is to form, nurturing and supportive relationships with teachers and friends, you have come to the right place. 

We have said that the UNOW staff are our greatest resource – Why and what do we mean?

More than any puzzle, toy, book, or any physical, tangible item – our classroom staff are the most important element, in building emotional connections with young children.

Teachers at UNOW set the tone, create the fabric of our classrooms .Metaphorically speaking, they lay the picnic blanket down with concentrated, intentional teaching and astute observations of the children in their classrooms. This blanket of support lays the basis for children’s creativity, risk taking, and interests to grow. Children at UNOW have the opportunity to follow their curiosity and make their own decisions. 

Come join us!
