Program details 

Many parents can sense their nursery aged children developing greater independence.  Our teachers work with parents and children to support and encourage this independence by creating a classroom with daily and weekly rhythms that allow the children to take initiative and responsibility. 

Children in nursery learn to put on their own coat and shoes which promotes patience with oneself and abilities.  Through this and similar guided activities, our students learn self-reliance, confidence, and patience in learning as they gain new skills.  These lessons serve them for a lifetime.

The daily and weekly activities in nursery provide an age-attuned rhythm of play, circle time, storytelling, shared snack and meal time, and hands-on artistic activity that fosters learning by doing. Daily activities are designed to nurture the imagination, develop creativity, inspire curiosity, and promote love and respect. The Nursery program also provides children with the fundamental group social skills and experience they will need for Kindergarten readiness.

Our school offers a 3-day program or a 5-day program. For students who need additional care, our school is happy to invite them to join our Nursery Extended Care Group. During Extended Care time, there is storytelling and resting or napping.
