The Nursery Classes are for children who will be three years old by October 1st of that school year. Our staff is aware that for many of these children this is their first time separating from parents. The separation process for some is immediate and for others can take weeks. Our Nursery teachers have many years of experience of how to make this a smooth transition.

Our curriculum is fun and engaging. Our children are exposed to a wide range of age appropriate academic skills but our philosophy is to prepare them socially and emotionally for the challenges that school holds.  Each child is at a different maturation level and will not grasp all the academic skills but we believe we can help them to self-regulate behavior and learn to love school. These goals are achieved by daily routine and consistent expectations for behavior.

Each month you will receive a calendar and newsletter that will inform you of the skills being introduced to the children. Each month will consist of a new Unit. The Unit will include: a Nursery Rhyme, 2 or 3 uppercase letters, a number, a color and a theme.

The skills will be introduced and reinforced during Circle Time and with activities and crafts. The children will have daily jobs that will include some of the Unit skills such as counting, calendar and weather.  You will see the Bulletin Boards in the classroom and hallway change with each new unit.

An Open House will be held at the end of September. Your child’s teacher will then explain the curriculum in detail. This will give each parent an opportunity to sit in the classroom and experience a day in the life of a Children’s Garden student.
