About USP Educare

Working towards the success of ALL learners is our priority. At the USP Educare Centre, teachers use a variety of strategies to make ALL children feel welcome and we also provide a variety of activities to meet the wide range of needs in children.

Why is early learning important?

Research shows that learning in the early years lays the foundation for later learning and sets children on a path for school, work and life. Your child will benefit from attending our USP Educare program before they go to school.

USP Educare Centre

Promotes a curriculum that is based on play. Children develop basic skills through play. Basic mathematics and science concepts such as categorizing, sorting and matching, making sets, seriating, colors, counting, experimenting and exploring are developed through play. Social skills and language are developed through interacting with one another. Children learn to share, take turns, communicate, negotiate, solve problems and many more skills are developed. The skills developed will help your child for his/her whole life.

In our program we encourage families and staff to work together and provide important learning experiences for young children.

We have 4 terms with 4 exciting themes. Term 1- All About Me; Term 2- In the Garden; Term 3- Transportation and Exploration; Term 4- Underwater World.

Other Important Department

Other departments like the Health Ministry, Road Safety, Fire, Police and the Army will be requested to pay visits to the Educare throughout the academic year, so children are familiar with the roles they play.


Parents will be called when this happens, and the staff will look after the child before the parent or guardian arrives. The teacher will fill an incident report whereby parents with the teacher signs the report. If the accident is serious, teachers will provide an emergency evacuation to the hospital.
