Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Okemos Nursery School is a child-centered, developmental program for preschool children. The program provides experiences in multi-media art, foreign language, music, drama, sign language, science, math, gymnastics, language arts, fine motor skills, and social and moral development.

Weekly lesson plans are provided to the parents to keep them aware of and involved in the children's daily activities. A nutritious snack is provided daily and often is in keeping with our weekly units.

Group experiences as well as self-selected activities are provided to encourage cooperation and self-discovery. The children learn to express their negative emotions verbally and learn through the reactions of others to accept responsibility for their own actions.

Our emphasis is on the development of the whole child.
