The Senior Nursery curriculum is designed to harness your child's natural creativity and curiosity. Our carefully designed activities engage your child using Art, Science, Music, Crafts, Math and Reading.
Our classrooms are arranged to promote learning through a child's natural curiosity and interests. Your child will spend part of the day working individually, at his/her own pace, and part of the day working as part of a group. This schedule respects your child's individual needs, while helping your child to build the social skills needed to succeed in and beyond school.
