About Our Curriculum:

General Interpretation: This is accomplished through a play cognitive curriculum, consistent with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The curriculum encourages children to be actively involved in the learning process, to experience a variety of developmentally appropriate activities and materials, and to pursue their own interests in the context of life in the community and the world. The philosophy guiding the Nursery School program is grounded in:

  • Establishing a loving and trusting relationship in which the child feels secure away from home.
  • Initiating intellectual, social, emotional, and physical experiences consistent with the developmental level of the child.
  • Assisting the child in becoming aware of his/her own feelings and dealing with his/her emotions on a verbal rather than a physical level.
  • Providing an environment in which the child may successfully master the developmental tasks appropriate to his/her age group.
  • Enhancing the child’s feelings of self-esteem, self-worth, competence, confidence, and independence.
  • Developing among the children a spirit of cooperative play.
  • Providing educational and cultural enrichment.
  • Providing experiences that primarily foster social and emotional readiness for public school.
