our nursery program

We offer a five day daycare for students 6 weeks to 2 years old. This includes our nursery, waddler room and toddler room. The Nursery is available from 7:30 a.m. to 5:25 p.m. each day. The Nursery Program’s underlying philosophy draws from Jean Piaget’s work on cognitive development, Erik Eriksson’s stages of socio-emotional development, and accepted theories of how children learn best. The approach is practical, easy-to-understand, and immediately applicable to a variety of settings. This excellent program is also based upon a framework of six different aspects including; how children develop and learn, the learning environment, what children learn, the teacher’s role, the family’s role, and research theory.
