Nursery Program

Nursery is the first time that your child is in school and we try to make it as warm and inviting as possible both for the child and the family.  We make learning fun!  Young children learn best through play.  Play promotes language, creativity, exploration, discovery, problem solving and thinking skills.  These are the areas your child will work and play in:

Social Development – learning the rules and routines, following directions, handling choices, respecting others, sharing, taking turns, taking care of belongings and personal space.

Language Arts – speaking and listening, letter names and sounds, stories, poems, rhyming, book handling, story retelling, sequencing, sharing ideas, environmental print and labeling their drawings with the first letter sound.

Math – counting forwards and backwards, patterning, sorting, number recognition, subitizing and part-part whole.

Music/Art/Drama – singing, painting, drawing, using art materials, using rhythm instruments, puppets and dramatic play.

Fine Motor – cutting, pasting, using pencils, markers, crayons and paints, printing and other fine motor activities.

Assessment – teacher observations, portfolio journal, checklists, the Elementary Assessment Program (E.A.P.) and the Nursery Report Card.

Attendance – it is important for your child's learning to come to school every day.

Teacher – Ms. J. Cobb

Educational Assistant – Mrs. S. Calanza
