Growing together

Wu Yee’s Child Development Program fosters children’s individual growth and development. Our curriculum is play-based and designed to grow with each child. We support cultural diversity and dual language learning. We also work with families to help them thrive and succeed.

We use Creative Curriculum to provide strategies for addressing the needs of all children, including dual language learners and those who have special needs.

All teaching staff meet California Commission of Teacher Credentialing Permit requirements and the adult-child ratios in our center based program are compliant with California Title 5 regulations. We believe in creating a warm, safe and stable environment for all of our children, families, volunteers, guests and staff.
