The Nursery is composed of children ranging from early 3′s through 4 years. Here, socialization and language skills become the focus as the children come together in this family-like setting and learn to play and work together. The songs, verses and games the teacher introduces during circle time are more complex than Morning Garden, and help to develop within the child an interest and love of language. The daily structure is similar to that of the Five-Day Kindergarten, but is designed in regard to the needs of the younger child.

Nursery program options include:

  • Wed-Fri, 8:00am-12:00pm or 8:00am-3:00pm
  • Mon-Fri, 8:00am-12:00pm or 8:00am-3:00pm

In addition, nursery students are eligible for after care until 6:00pm.

Please note: Nursery children must be toilet-trained for placement into the class.
