We believe that children learn best in positive and engaging outdoor environments. Our nursery school children have regular and repeated access to the natural world by spending ½ of their morning in our Nature Classroom. Through this, children are receiving an educational experience while engaging in active exploration, inquiry, and play.
Each day at Discovery, children are offered learning experiences in outdoor spaces that invite them to investigate, imagine, create, solve problems, and make meaning from their experiences with interesting and complex open-ended materials. Our environments, learning experiences, transitions and routines support children’s growing autonomy and independence. All our experiences occur to support children’s connections to and interactions with the natural world and to enhance children’s natural sense of wonder and joy that sets the foundation for optimal success
(Sept. - end of June)
The nursery program runs between 9am-11:30 am on Tuesdays & Thursdays. The Nursery program will not be run, and there will be no fees charged, during PD/School Board holidays. Parents will receive a list of these days at time of registration. Parents are requested to arrive 5 minutes prior to pick up time in order to have time to discuss their child’s day with the teachers.
Our nursery school program is licensed for 24 children, ages 2.5-5 years. There are 3 teachers working with the children (1:8 ratio).
