Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Nursery school is probably one of the first experiences your child will have with a community outside the home. We believe Holy Nativity Pre-School offers a warm, loving, child-centered atmosphere that will allow children to grow comfortably toward their potential. We furnish experiences that will develop a greater awareness of each child's individuality. Each child has a unique personal potential which needs developing. We hope to promote within each child a movement to happy and fulfilling relationships.
We are a school that grew out of the Holy Nativity Christian community and continue to acknowledge our spiritual roots and traditions. Important holidays such as Easter, Passover, and Christmas are discussed with the children on their level. We believe it is essential for our children to experience these activities.
One of the things that is encouraged at Holy Nativity is a sense of community. The children find God's love as they interact with each other, their teachers and aides. They learn to care for each other as they study and play within a communal setting.

A Typical Day

"The daily schedule provides time for both quiet and active experiences. There is a great amount of flexibility in our schedule so we may address each child's interest level. Outdoor play is also part of our daily routine, weather permitting. Monthly, the Vicar invites the children into the church and introduces them to Bible stories and the seasons of the church year.
We provide a daily snack to each child preceded by a prayer of thanks. Snacks usually consist of fruit juice and crackers or pretzels. Occasionally raisins, fresh fruit, vegetables, etc. are served. If your child is on any kind of RESTRICTED or SPECIAL DIET, please notify us before school begins so we may accommodate his/her needs.
Cooking is often included in our activities to add another learning experience. Furthermore, it's fun for the children to eat what they prepare. Birthday parties are also fun and you are welcome to talk with the teacher about this. We celebrate special holidays and ask parents to contribute party supplies.
