The Nursery School programme is designed to encourage a balance of child centered and teacher facilitated activities. This programme offers children a variety of choices provided within a carefully prepared indoor and outdoor environment. The environment includes art, dramatic plays, unit blocks, manipulatives, language arts, books, music, computers, water and sand play, building of large structures, gardening, running, climbing, animal care, and a variety of large and small motor activities. Our goal is to encourage each child's natural curiosity and interests in learning. We feel it is important for the children to actively participate in the learning process, and therefore provide many opportunities for learning by doing, for both indirect and direct acquisition of new knowledge and skill.
