Nursery & Toddlers
Our 2-year old Nursery & Toddler Program consists of a wonderful day of learning, developing and exploring. We strive for a nurturing environment and encourage our children to increase their independence through creativity and exploration.
Our day begins with independent morning play and crafts made daily in small groups. We have circle time which presents a wonderful opportunity for children to develop responsibility and learn through music and song. Children get daily exercise during outdoor playground time, indoor tumbling, music marching, and interactive songs. Learning time includes games, shapes, colors, music and reading books. Our classroom library changes regularly to fit lessons and seasons.
Our ideal classroom size has en children or less, with two teachers to guide children through their day. We believe that a lower child/teacher ratio helps to prevent children from becoming easily overwhelmed in a large group. This also allows more individual attention to be given to each child. The lassroom is set up with learning centers such as blocks, arts and crafts, a reading nook, dramatic play and music. Our classroom is a special place for your child to grow and learn, all while feeling confident, comfortable and loved.
We encourage parents to have direct contact with our teachers, and we work closely with our parents to facilitate their children’s needs. Because many of our children have a full day with us at school, our goal is to lovingly nurture them along their day. Although we stay on a schedule, we do let the children guide us so they can explore their own interests as the day progresses. The children come in every morning eager to learn, and they enjoy being in our classroom and playing with their friends. Being part of the Nursery & Toddler Program and working with this age group is truly the best way to spend one’s day!
