Under-3 Nursery Program (Ages 12 months to 3 years)
Apple Blossom School and Family Center is proud to announce a new program specially developed for the toddler from 12 months to 3 years. Quiet, gentle touch, singing, and a sensitive individualized approach introduces each child to care outside of the home. Enveloped by a holistic rhythm and a small class size, each child is met at their own stage of development, finding the opportunity to socialize and grow into independent, helpful and creative human beings. The child's personal initiative is strengthened through a curriculum that encourages each child's own self initiation in play and work, and in social learning with respectful, observant adults always close at hand. A carefully designed learning environment both indoors and out, supports the strengthening of large and small motor skills, oral and receptive language, musical gifts, and a life long love for the natural world. This program is offered with 2, 3, or 5 day options to insure a secure choice for each family and their unique situation.
3 Day Nursery Program (Ages 3-4 years)
The nursery provides a secure and inviting home-like environment which can be the bridge from home to school. This program is designed for children who are ready for a nurturing and enriching experience without a parent. Each day unfolds in a natural way, following a dependable rhythm that gives the child a sense of security and consistency. Drawing, water-color painting, baking, handwork, woodwork, storytelling, puppetry and outdoor play are examples of program activities that nourish the child’s awe and wonder and create an environment worthy of imitation – the natural learning style at this age.
