Mission of the Preschool
The mission of UNF Preschool is to provide high-quality school readiness and development programs for the children of UNF students, faculty, staff and the general public.
Purpose of the Preschool
The UNF Preschool’s purpose is twofold:
1. Firstly, the Center provides children with a warm, accepting environment and meaningful experiences that encourage them to value and respect themselves, others and their world. It strives to help children develop self-worth, self-awareness, consideration for the welfare of others, an ethic of sharing, and a love of learning, while preparing them for their future academic endeavors.
2. Secondly, the Center provides the University a research and training site for students and faculty in Education and other majors. Students and faculty of UNF and partnering institutions use the Center for research, pre-internship work, observation, and volunteer opportunities for their coursework.
