Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our goal is to create a warm environment where a child may grow in an atmosphere that inspires confidence. Class sizes are kept small to assure a high ratio of teacher-child interaction. Students learn to express feelings, share with others, and participate in a group.
Though our school focuses on developing and enriching socialization skills of preschoolers, our program also includes the enrichment of language skills and physical activity (indoor and outdoor). We have visitors for cultural and Jewish enrichment, as well as fun activities relating to reading readiness, math and science.

A Typical Day

"On a typical day at Center Nursery School you would see each class in its own activity room equipped with paints, crayons, clay, sand and water playboxes, a computer and more. After cleanup, the children listen to music and stories before a wholesome snack is served. Following this there is creative time including music, crafts, show and tell, and visits from people in our neighborhood. If the weather is dry, the children go outside to play in our beautiful, fenced-in playground. In inclement weather, the children jump, tumble and slide in our multi-purpose room. "
