Christ Church Nursery School

"Helping children embrace learning with curiosity, enthusiasm and confidence!"
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 all-purpose room or classrooms and are full of songs, musical instruments, movement and lots of fun!
In addition to music, our Preschool and Pre-K classes are also offered a weekly Gardening Lesson with our experienced Gardener. 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 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.
We also offer a six week SUMMER PROGRAM that runs Monday through Thursday. We offer two scheduling options; the half day meets 9:00-12:00 and the full day meets 9:00-2:30. Toddlers and preschoolers (ages 1 and up) are eligible to attend. 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. Priority is given to families registering for more weeks.
