Nursery School is usually the first extended time spent away from home. Most important in sustaining this transition is an understanding teacher, sensitive to the new separation yet warm in her support for the new adventure.
All of our teachers are fully qualified with the necessary State certifications, training, and experience in the field of Early Childhood Education. They recognize an atmosphere of freedom is not created by abandoning preparation and planning but in doing even more preparation and creative planning than is necessary in the conventional classrooms of the elementary schools. Although the atmosphere in the room appears free, the teacher knows where the class is going. Every teacher believes deeply in the integrity of the individual child, and devotes much time and energy in finding out how to best direct each child to his fullest potential.
Our program centers around the child considering at all times his desires as well as his capabilities. Activities and materials are carefully chosen to help each child learn and identify, categorize and then integrate these experiences within himself which results in self-confidence and secure independence.
Recognition is given to the child's need for sufficient time to develop at his own rate and pace. With approval, understanding and many opportunities to assume responsibility for himself, each child blossoms remarkably in self-esteem and maturity.
