THE EXPERIENCE

At Christ Church Nursery School, the learning never ends! Exploring the world of learning, we begin the preschool journey by giving children the opportunity to increase their independence, language and social skills with learning experiences revolving around children’s literature. We bring music, movement, art, math and science together using songs, experiments, cooking activities and art projects. As the children grow and advance in their skill levels, we continue to work to develop school readiness skills. Understanding the way young children learn best, we use play and hands-on experiences to make learning fun and meaningful.       

OUR CURRICULUM

Understanding child development, we aim to exceed all of the NJ State Teaching and Learning Standards for Preschoolers as we build on and expand children’s learning experiences and school readiness skills. 

 

In our Young Learners Classes, the children are introduced to a school setting as they learn to separate from their parents. The main focus is social interaction as children learn to communicate and cooperate with peers. Our young students learn how to work in a group, follow directions, take turns, and communicate their needs. Through play and interaction with teachers, we encourage pre-literacy skills (through stories and songs), math skills (such as one-to-one correspondence and comparisons), fine motor skills (through drawing, painting and manipulatives), gross motor skills (on the playground, gym and stair walking) and sensory exploration (with paint, sand, shaving cream, etc.)

As children progress to our Preschool Classes, we continue to reinforce and build upon previously learned skills. We also work to help children visually recognize and write their names. Our activities offer them ample time to learn through play, as they practice writing, tracing, cutting, gluing and painting. Letter and number recognition is formally introduced this year. Each day is a new adventure full of music, movement, art, discovery and fun!

In our Pre-Kindergarten Classes, children continue to work on their social and emotional development as they grow. We encourage creativity and assist children in developing their problem solving skills. They advance their fine motor skills as they continue to practice tracing, cutting, painting, gluing and writing. Their cognitive skills will be challenged as they develop and increase their readiness skills. Letter and number recognition is incorporated in all we do, as we prepare for kindergarten. This work will revolve around featured children’s literature and seasonal themes. The children will also work to learn their addresses and phone numbers as the year progresses. Learning is always hands-on, as preschoolers learn best by doing. We utilize all of children’s senses to make learning meaningful and memorable. New vocabulary and experiences help them to build upon previous knowledge as they continue to grow and develop.
