A cooperative nursery school in Irondequoit, NY
We seek conscientiously to reflect the best thinking in the field of early childhood education and to create an environment that will encourage the healthy growth of young children. Play experiences are the curriculum of the nursery school. We believe that through play, young children grow best in all areas of life: social, emotional, physical and cognitively. Play enables the development of all of these areas simultaneously. These growth areas for toddlers and preschoolers need to be integrated rather than isolated. We encourage children and their families to share in the school program and thereby enjoy these "magic years". With the working assistance of mothers, fathers and other caregivers, we endeavor to develop a joint understanding of their child's needs and stronger mutual goals for home and school.
