Nursery School Program

Early schoolers preparing for the next steps in education

Getting Ready for Pre-school and Beyond

Nursery School Program at Grand Tots
Our nursery school program is designed to help children adjust to a new environment and confidently develop their skills and interests. This program is a perfect building block that’s made to meet the needs of 30 to 42 month old children. As they grow to be independent learners, these children develop the ability to work with others, follow directions, self-regulate, follow routines, and build self-help skills.

Our Nursery School classroom empowers early preschoolers to become independent children who can work with classmates and follow instructions. Their independence is nurtured so that they may build the ability to self-regulate and help themselves. They develop these skills through:

Social studies
The arts
Our Approach To Education

We believe the nursery school experience is the building block for all later learning. Everything a child learns lays a foundation for concepts they will be presented with later in life.

Learning Environment
In the nursery school classroom, you will see learning centers stocked with materials that are intentionally placed to encourage purposeful and engaging play. Dramatic play, library, blocks, creative arts, science, math, and sensory experiences are offered daily.
Learning Activities
Your child will experience a well-rounded balance of learning activities and many opportunities to develop important skills needed to be successful in school. Skills range from learning basic colors worth younger children to exploring the alphabet with older children.
