Our Purpose To provide an enrichment program of love, learning and fun (an extension of the home) for children 3 and 4 years old. Our program is developmental, emphasizing growth in all areas; physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual.
Our
Object
  1. To aid the child in gaining greater command of their body and to guide them to more satisfying relationships with other children and adults.

  2. To extend and deepen their understanding of their social and scientific world.

  3. To develop competence in the skills of listening and speaking

  4. To introduce music, literature, graphic arts and rhythmic expression.

Young children learn through first-hand experiences. The Nursery School curriculum offers wide and varied experiences in art, music, literature, the natural and physical sciences, and community life. It opens the door to new interests and enriches already existing ones. It provides the children with a chance to work and play with others and to practice those skills which make daily living more enjoyable. The Nursery School builds a background of first hand experiences in preparation for future learning.

 

Within this framework, and under the thoughtful and sympathetic guidance of the teacher, the nursery-age child is allowed to develop trustful relationships with adults other than members of his own family, to develop self discipline and strengthen their inner controls, to increase their independence, to be free is self-expression in the arts, to observe, to investigate, to seek and acquire information and to think critically. In short, the Nursery School should enable the child to face the future with confidence and anticipation because of the multitude of satisfying experiences.
