Nursery School & Kindergarten

We believe that the intellectual and emotional lives of young children develop best in a setting in which teachers, the environment, and the program support play and exploration and the construction of relationships and ideas.

In the Nursery and Kindergarten Program, children learn to play and play to learn. They enjoy opportunities to take initiative, make friends, experience a sense of belonging, expand language, increase logical thinking, and develop social awareness. Particular attention is paid to activities that support mathematical and spatial thinking, literacy, knowledge about the physical world and the development of empathy. The outdoors is viewed as an extension of the classroom and affords daily opportunities for a great variety of physical challenges, social play as well as an exploration of the natural world.
