Nursery school is an exciting step for children and parents alike. At Potter’s Imaginations, much of what children do and learn in our younger classrooms lead up to it. It is within the first year of the Nursery Program school readiness becomes even more important.
In these classes, children will focus on school preparation, so they will have the tools necessary to move forward towards primary school. Providing learning areas in which children plan and select their activities also helps facilitate integrated curriculum, children’s social growth, and maturation during this stage that interact with their experiences to produce changes in gross and fine-motor development.
Children in our Nursery program make great strides in cognitive development and social skills. This growth affects not only their academic work and other areas of intellectual functioning but also their language and communication abilities, independence, and moral reasoning.
Forming close relationships with each child, our Nursery teachers plan lessons to deepen each child’s understanding of basic academic concepts and skills, through exploration, investigation and play. While we increase the focus on math, science, language, reading, and social studies, we’ll make sure it’s presented with a big dose of fun!
We provide an environment where children can challenge themselves and enjoy the thrill of discovery as they look forward to elementary school.
