WECP is affiliated with the University of Wisconsin through the Graduate School. Designed to meet the needs of a developmentally diverse group of young children, it also provides a site for university research and training.
Our program goals are:
1. Service: to provide an exemplary inclusive child development program for children developing typically and for those with special needs.
2. Training: to provide disciplinary and interdisciplinary training to university students.
3. Research: to provide a research setting in which relevant educational and developmental issues can be studied.
4. Outreach: to provide community consultation and professional development opportunities about early childhood development, education and inclusion to programs and individuals.
The goal of the WECP is to provide a supportive and enriching environment that will foster each child’s social, emotional, cognitive, language, and physical development. The program incorporates the nurturing aspects of a home environment, and social and learning opportunities provided in a group early education setting. The typical day provides opportunities for discovery, constructive and imaginary play; language arts and literacy; music, art and creative projects; and science, technology and math experiences. Grounded in the belief that children learn through play, there are many opportunities for children to direct their own activities, explore the environment and follow their interests.
