Pre-nursery Program :
Classroom schedules have been created in a manner that is developmentally appropriate for these energetic and curious minds. Our curriculum for this age group helps build relationships, and meaningful daily routines. This is done through experiences and exposure to vocabulary that respond to a child’s strengths and interests. The program focuses on orienting them to instruction based activities, exposure to Art, books, manipulative, sensory areas to enhance their fine and gross motor skills. We encourage both verbal and non – verbal communication for interaction. They go into the Nursery program after 6 months where they learn to give a definitive outcome with the materials available and verbalize their thoughts.
