The New Nursery School serves children age’s 2-5 years. Mornings and afternoon sessions are available.
The daily schedule includes active and quiet indoor and outdoor play, art, dramatic play, music and creative movement, block building, sand and water play, science experiences, stories, manipulative materials, cooking, exploring, thinking, questioning, talking and laughing. Children learn to be participating members of a group and build a sense of community with the help of teachers who encourage the awareness of emotions and the responsibilities of social behavior.
Because children learn by doing, we emphasize process rather than product and problem solving rather than answer giving so that children can build self-reliance and a positive self-image. Self help skills are encouraged therefore clothing that is child friendly is suggested. We also suggest that children come to school in clothing that can get dirty. The New Nursery School values exploratory art and outdoor play.
Please contact the Director for more information or to arrange a tour of the school.
