YOUR CHILDS LIFE AT CNS
We at Central Nursery School recognize and understand that each and every child is a special and unique person whose rate of development, growth and maturation varies significantly. We believe that self-esteem is basic to all learning.
As a facilitator of learning, the teacher carefully plans the curriculum to provide a dynamic learning environment where the child learns through self-discovery in a loving and relaxed atmosphere. Individual interests, skills and needs are considered in curriculum planning. Many play experiences such as dramatic play, block building and the use of climbing apparatus encourage the development of social skills as well as large and small coordination.
Daily activities with music help the child gain a concept of rhythm, individual interpretation and general appreciation. Auditory and verbal skills are developed through expressive language experiences. An atmosphere is set to encourage the child’s spontaneity and creativity in verbal expression.
Cooking experiences aid in the discovery of math, science, and most importantly, socialization. Weights and measures, sorting and classifying involve the use of unifix blocks, cuisinaire rods, salt boxes, sand box, water play and playdough. The alphabet is presented through various activities, games or projects that are appropriate for the individual class.
Discovery through process art is a very integral part of our program. Experimentation with an extensive variety of art media helps the child to gain confidence and pleasure in the process of doing and discovering for himself rather than completing a preconceived end product.
Activities vary from day to day with value also given to repetitive experiences. Every task has merit and may be interpreted differently by each child because of his or her level of discovery and maturity. Each class develops a sense of community within a caring/sharing environment. At all times, learning is taking place and is ongoing. Central Nursery School strives to provide an educational program which stimulates and promotes the full potential of each child.
