FULL DAY 3 YEAR OLD NURSERY SCHOOL PROGRAM
Our Full Day 3 Year Old Nursery School Program is offered Monday through Friday 8:30am – 3:30pm (Before & After School available).
Children in this program are with us for full days and therefore are offered a variety of enhancements to their Nursery School curriculum. The mornings are designed for Circle Time, Centers, Literacy, Math, Art Creations, Music, Movement and theme related activities. The afternoons are designed for enhanced curriculum activities such as additional Spanish, Sign Language, Cooking, Science, Drama, Yoga, Field Trips, Visitors, and group lessons in a variety of offerings.
Children at school for full days may move along at a faster pace and therefore benefit from more advanced literacy activities. This is taken into account and each child is challenged on their academic level. We join the part time Nursery School Class for activities and recess to add variety and additional opportunities for socialization. Children benefit from the enriching Centers and materials in both 3 Year Old Nursery School Classrooms. We also have more time and opportunities to visit our PreKindergarten, Jr. Kindergarten and Kindergarten friends.
Snack and Lunch: Children pack a healthy snack each day and those who are with us full day, need to bring their lunch with an ice pack. Lunch items may be “heat-ups”. We often enjoy cooking and/or baking our snacks.
Nap/Rest Time: Children with us full day may nap after Lunch Bunch. Nap Time occurs in a separate Nursery School Classroom. Children bring a small pillow and blanket in a “Nap Bag” which may be left at school and taken home on Fridays for washing. If parents prefer their child not nap, at 12:15pm after Lunch Bunch, they will go back to class, and will have a Quiet Time from 12:15pm-1pm, followed by normal class.
Recess: We go outside year-round, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. We encourage all students to have appropriate winter gear as we enjoy outside play all throughout the winter months.
Before School Program: Full Day students may attend the Before School Program on a regular basis or as needed. Children may arrive from 6:30am – 8:30am. If a child attends the Before School Program on an “as needed” basis, there is no need to call before coming. This program is FREE OF CHARGE for all our Full Day students.
After School Program: Full Day students may attend the After School Program on a regular basis or as needed. This program is offered from dismissal at 3:30 to 6:30pm. If a child attends the After School Program on an “as needed” basis, parents may call the Main Office to inform us to have your child attend the program or parents may complete the lime green “Change Form” at arrival to inform us. This program is FREE OF CHARGE for all our Full Day students.
