Little Ropers Child Enrichment Center is a child development program providing within FUSD and we care for children ages birth -5yrs of age in a educationally rich environment. We are a lab as well for future educators and early childhood professionals to come and observe and learn alongside our staff. We strive to provide children with daily experiences that will expand knowledge, arouse curiosity, foster creativity, enhance social skills and nurture self-worth. We respect a child’s need to develop and grow in their own special and distinctive way and encourage them to respect the freedoms and differences of those around them.
At Little Ropers we base our teaching beliefs on the theory that play is fundamental to learning. We promote a culture of strong family involvement. We have developed a Reggio Emilia-inspired environment and our curriculum is child directed. There is an emphasis on the teacher as a co-learner and the classroom as a third teacher.
