Nursery students (children who have turned 3 by August 1) are in for an exciting year, filled with a developmentally appropriate, child-centered curriculum and a supportive, joyful atmosphere.
Meaningful, hands-on learning activities help each child progress through the unique stages of development with support from a low student-teacher ratio in the classroom. Teachers act as nurturers, listeners, and facilitators as each child explores the environment, interacts with peers and materials, and strives to make sense of a complex world. Social and emotional development, as well as intellectual growth, are promoted and reinforced through theme-based experiences as well as daily routines. The school’s curricular benchmarks begin in nursery and build through subsequent grades. Here, the foundation is set for children to become active problem solvers and critical thinkers.
