The main purpose of our Nursery School is to provide a safe, friendly atmosphere where children, aged 3-5 years, learn through play and through their own sense of wonder. Our goal is to provide materials, toys and activities that arouse children’s curiosity, stimulate their creativity and build confidence and independence.
Our program is designed to meet the needs of the whole child. We focus on the children’s physical, social, creative, intellectual and emotional development. Your child will be offered on a daily basis: free play, creative art, storytelling, songs and music/gross motor activities. Your child will be encouraged to participate in both the structured and unstructured activities.
We are fortunate to have the use of the elementary school gym and playground. This allows us the opportunity to provide activities that require greater space and energy. It also helps children to familiarize themselves with school culture.
Each week, activities and circle time will focus around an established theme. Circle time is when the children gather to discuss the theme of the week through song, finger plays, stories, props and guest visitors. The theme is also celebrated at other times with special parties and the occasional field trip.
