The Universal American School’s Early Childhood Department is excited to welcome you to a fabulous year of learning and growth. Whether you are a returning learner or new to our learning community, we are thrilled to have you as part of our Early Childhood Community. The early years is an exciting time for learners. They begin to develop their personalities, their minds, and their love and joy for learning. We are honored to be part of your child’s learning journey.
Young learners are inquisitive about the world around them. At UAS we offer a unique program that aims to develop the whole child: socially-emotionally, cognitively and physically through developmentally appropriate expectations. We believe in the environment (the classroom) being the third teacher. We have many play areas that promote the student as the leader of their investigations and education. Our teachers are trained to guide children along their journey, observe and assess without interrupting the student at work and to help all children achieve success.
We have a highly diverse, qualified, and talented staff. You can trust that your child will be supported, encouraged, and loved. We can’t wait to welcome you back and meet your child!
We are your partners in your child’s education. Your child’s success is dependent on a strong relation between home and school. If you ever have any questions we want to hear from you. We look forward to working closely with you. Our doors are always open.
At UAS, we strongly believe in safety, kindness, and responsibility in both our words and actions. We are fostering an environment where community members are self-reflective and make choices that are safe, kind, and responsible.
Always remember to choose safety, choose kindness, and choose responsibility.
Looking forward to a wonderful school year full of learning, memory making, and growth!

Vice Principal’s Message
Welcome to the UAS Early Childhood Community! The first day of school is a special moment for all children and a time of change. As we welcome our young learners to school, we acknowledge that now more than ever, social-emotional learning is of the utmost importance. Prioritizing these developmental skills will help build a strong foundation to guide our early learners through their academic journey. Therefore, we aim to emphasize interactive, engaging, and hands-on learning experiences for our learners. Research has shown that learning through play will help our learners make sense of the world around them as they begin to make connections and add more meaning and understanding to their experiences. Our EC teachers have been working very hard in developing lessons that will meet each learner and their unique developmental needs.
As the Vice Principal of the EC department, my priority is to foster transparent and effective communication with the entire learning community. In addition, I believe that by bringing the house as close to the classroom as possible, we can foster a more nurturing and effective school experience for our learners. Here at the UAS, we choose safety, kindness, and responsibility. I am fully committed and passionate about making this transition for our incoming learners and families as seamless, safe, and enjoyable as possible! On behalf of the EC department, I would like to wholeheartedly welcome you and your child to UAS, where adventure awaits!
