The Nursery provides a gentle first “school experience” for children ages 3.0-4.4 years. The Nursery class is designed to meet the needs of the young child in a loving, homelike setting.
Young children are deeply influenced by their environment. All they experience through their senses, their sense of movement, their sense of goodness of the world and the warmth of soul of those around them impresses upon their developing bodies and minds. Great care is taken to provide a peaceful environment filled with simple toys and natural playthings.
Children are gently guided through their daily activities with songs and verses. The mornings flow with a rhythm that includes; a circle time of songs and games, indoor and outdoor free play, story time with puppets, domestic activities and a warm, organic snack. Seasonal crafts, painting, gardening and baking are woven into each week. From the warmth and rhythm of the Nursery class, children develop a sense of security and confidence, new friendships, and a reverence for nature.
The Nursery class is guided by a lead teacher with an assistant and has a maximum limit of twelve children.
