Four year olds and PreK five year olds have the option of attending nursery school either three or five days per week. Children at this stage build strong social competencies and develop learning strategies within a context of play and teacher guided activities and projects. Developmentally appropriate kindergarten readiness skills are an integral part of the curriculum.
Characteristics of the Program
Classes meet from 9 a.m. until Noon (time currently adjusted due to Covid mitigation), from September through June.
Classes are led by caring, highly educated and trained head teachers and assistant teachers who hold college degrees, have a strong background in early childhood development and are certified in First Aid and Infant and Child CPR.
SPCNS prides itself in the quality of its care and the individualized attention offered to each child. Low student to teacher ratios ensure that the children will receive the nurturing and attention they need and deserve.
To supplement daily activities, each class has a weekly session with specially trained Creative Movement and Music teachers.
