FRESNO EARLY LEARNING MISSION: The Fresno Unified School District Early Learning Department is committed to ensuring all children have an equitable start for college, career, and life readiness.  This is accomplished by providing nurturing, child-centered environments and high-quality educational programs that value and respect the language, culture, and needs of all students, families, staff, and communities.

CORE BELIEFS:

  • Every child develops (socially, emotionally, cognitively, linguistically, and physically) at an individual rate, possesses unique characteristics, and exhibits an array of talents and interests regardless of family background, culture, special need, experience, or ability. Collecting and interpreting data through ongoing authentic assessment is fundamental to understanding a child's developmental and learning accomplishments and needs. 
  • Purposeful play is an essential vehicle for developing self-regulation as well as for promoting language, cognition, social competence, and critical thinking skills.
  • Social, emotional, and cognitive development (including executive functioning) is foundational to academic learning.
  • Effective early literacy instruction provides children with developmentally appropriate settings, materials, experiences, and social support encouraging oral language and early forms of reading and writing to develop into conventional literacy.
  • The quality of the teacher-child relationship serves as a critical role in social and emotional development and has the potential to exert a positive or negative influence on children's ability to succeed in school.
  • Meaningful family engagement in children's early development and learning supports school readiness and later academic success.
