Through the operation of the Preschool and the Nursery School, the University of Cyprus materializes its goals for academic excellence on the one hand, and its policy on combining work and family on the other hand, in the context of an environment of creation, innovation, love for the child and security. The «Lito Papchristoforou" Preschool and the University of Cyprus Nursery School aim at forming an environment of learning and development that establishes the continuity of the familial love and security, and it sets strong foundations for quality of life and education. Within a pleasant environment, which is equipped with contemporary equipment in order to contribute to the maximization of interaction between children and the development of creativity and critical thinking, continuous activities for learning and development are being carried out. The pedagogical approaches the school uses are always based on contemporary and continuous research in the field of preschool education and are enriched through the experiences, the outcomes of the principal's and staff's practices, the whole team's reflections and the research that is taking place.
Through an appropriately-designed pedagogical program that strengthens the participation and the voice of the children, while at the same time taking the present, past and future of every child into consideration, the all-around development of children in all aspects of development is pursued (mental, kinetic, socio-emotional strengthening).
The school's vision is the creation of an educational community of learning, in a safe environment, which is based on the development of positive relationships and enhances the love for learning. Every member of the community is requested to actively participate and has the right to form its experiences.
