Children's Center provides early education Katie McKim News Editor Ryan MillerThe College Times Children's Center provides non-traditional students a break. Where on the UVSC campus can you find Superman, Barney, The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Barbie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and others? The answer is the UVSC children's center. The children's center provides day care and early childhood education for children from the ages 3-5. The center opens at 7:30 a.m. and closes at 5:00 p.m. During day the students meet in la rge and small groups and participate in several activities. The large groups help to prepare thechildren for kindergarten and elementary school. The small groups do activities that provide learning and fine motor skills for the children. The children create art, listen to and learn music, participate in fun science activities, and enjoy creative play. Each day the children have outdoor play time. During the winter they are bundled up in warm clothing, in the sum-ner they are drenched in sun screen. The outdoor play allows the children to release all of their energy. UVSC students that are involved in the early childhood education program are required to take a class along with the work experience in the children's center. Christine Andersen, one of 3 head teachers in the center stated that "UVSC has an excellent program. There arealot of benefits. The students that receive this type of experience will have an advantage over those that wish to go into this field and haven't worked with children before." UVSC students wishing to receive a 2 year certificate must act as the head teacher for 1 week. During that time they will be in charge of the large and small groups, as well as self-selected free-play. The free-play rMi'st be a structured activity in which the children are learning new skills.

Utah legislature has begun making plans that will affect UVSC Jennifer Minnich Asst. Senior News Editor The Utah Legislature have begun their meetings and Utah Valley State College is on the agenda. The increasing growth in Utah Valley has created new problems and enhanced existing ones. Local legislatures are paying special attention to the needs of UVSC and the need for Utah County to help with higher educational opportunities and to help assure continued growth in the area. Since BYU has limited enrollment more and more people are coming to UVSC. Majority Leader Craig Peterson, R-Orem, from the senate, said that he is trying to make sure that UVSC is properly supported in its mission to provide community college and undergraduate study for residents in the valley. Another issue to be discussed is the increasing rates of tuition at colleges. Lawmakers are considering a tax cut of $30 million to $60 million, and college representatives are asking for their fair share, since they have been carrying most of the load for all of the schools expenses. Governor Mike Leavitt is concerned with the continually rising prices of college tuition and is looking for new ways to help educate students in Utah. The legislature is debating whether to make a tax cut or increase the budgets of the educational systems in Utah. One thing that authorities at UVSC are particularly concerned with is the lack of money coming in for Urgent Student Support. This is a part of the budget that is used directly to help students. "The students agreed that if we continued to raise the cost of tuition in the systems higher education, that the money would go directly back to benefit them in the form of more student services," said Linda Makin, associate director of budgets. "Financial aid, more counselors, and more books in the library are some of the services that receive that money." The Legislative Analyst's Recommendation was much less than was requested for Urgent Student Support. UVSC and the Board See LEGISLATURE, Page 7 Utah Legislature """"
