NNS provides a variety of activities that are active, quiet, teacher directed, and child initiated. Learning materials are rotated on a weekly basis and evaluated regularly by staff. Activities are designed to promote the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development of children in a manner consistent with the child’s cultural background.
The following are examples of activities available to children attending NNS:
- Intellectual: science experiments, math activities, stories, puzzles, games with rules.
- Physical: movement to rhythm, manipulative toys, blocks, art experiences, indoor/large muscle play, sand and water play, outdoor play.
- Social: dramatic play (dress up, housekeeping, etc.), snack, self-directed learning time.
- Emotional: art (paint, play dough, etc.), creative movement, dramatic play.
The program is flexible and we strive to adapt it to individual or group needs.
