Daily Activities

The nursery curriculum encompasses arts and crafts, cognitive activities, fine and gross motor development, music and movement, an introduction to French, computers, sensory activities and daily calendar and story time. The children go outside to our adjacent fenced-in playground daily (weather permitting).

Each classroom has one table devoted to teacher-directed activities, and all the children have an opportunity to participate in these activities on a one-to-one basis. Activities are modified to each child’s unique needs and strengths. While the teacher is working one-on-one with the students, the second teacher in the classroom facilitates opportunities for free play choices, independent play and social interaction.
