ADDITIONAL CLASS OPTIONS
All of our Nursery School classes are offered special Music classes by our certified music teacher who visits weekly. Classes are held in the CCNS Chapel or classrooms and are full of songs, musical instruments, movement and lots of fun!
In addition to music, our Pre-K classes are also offered a weekly Spanish Lesson with our experienced Spanish teacher. Our Physical Education Teacher also comes in weekly. During Gym class children work to develop their gross motor and coordination skills as they work together in group games and sports. Our Handwriting Workshop is another weekly activity reserved for our older children. Using the Handwriting without Tears program, our Handwriting Teacher works with children in small groups from all of our Pre-K classes.
Our Pre-K classes also meet bi-monthly with our CCNS Gardner who focuses on helping the children understand the concepts of composting and the life cycle of plants. The children will also work with our Gardner in own very outdoor garden to grown vegetables and herbs.
Our Pre-K Classes visit our school Library, monthly, to hear a special story and borrow a school book to share with their families. The goal of our Library class is to foster a love of books and reading from day one!
Chapel is another special activity offered to our Preschool and Pre-K classes. Chapel is held monthly and directed by the Christ Church Rector or Assistant Rector. The Rectors also visit the classrooms monthly for a special story time using our children’s Bible. This special time offers the children the opportunity to learn about the love that God and Jesus has for all of us through Bible stories and songs.
Each school year, we offer additional programs which run for 8-10 weeks. One of these programs is called LUNCH & LEARN. Children attending school for a half-day have the opportunity to bring their lunches from home and stay at school for a full day enjoying additional learning and extra time with friends. This wonderful program extends the children’s school day while focusing on specific topics and skills. LUNCH & LEARN is reserved for our Preschoolers and Pre-K students.
Our Young Learners are offered another option called FUN FRIDAYS. This program offers an additional session on Friday mornings. Both programs are offered for an additional fee. Registration information for these programs will be sent home with your children three times, annually. Returning the registration forms in a timely manner is strongly suggested, as class size is limited and available on a first come, first served basis.
We also offer a six week SUMMER PROGRAM that runs Monday through Thursday from 9:00—12:00. It is offered to all toddlers and preschoolers (ages 1 and up.) The activities revolve around weekly themes and includes water play on sunny days. Many of our existing staff members participate in the program. You may register for as many weeks as you want, from two to all six, in a timely manner. You can also choose to extend your child’s day with our Early Arrival Options at 8:00 or 8:30 and/or our Lunch Bunch Program from 12:00-1:00. Here the children bring their lunch from home and enjoy a special story time with the Director.
