Our multiage preschool classes for three- and four-year-olds are available two, three or five days a week, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. We also offer the option of a shorter day for 3-year-olds, ending at 11:30AM. Families may choose what they feel works best for their child.
We teach a multi-age curriculum, with the three- and four-year-old students together in one class.
Every day at Killingworth Nursery School is filled with a variety of activities that make learning fun. Each child has an opportunity to explore his/her environment at his/her own pace.
Children are encouraged to share, socialize and create. Our warm, caring teaching staff relates daily concepts and themes in a secure, stimulating preschool environment. All teachers encourage children to expand their interests, recognizing the uniqueness of each child.
At Killingworth Nursery School, all children are accepted, as they are curious, spirited, adventurous lovers of life! We strive to bring quality learning experiences to all children, guiding and interacting with the world around us. Learning is exciting! We strive to bring a sense of fulfillment and joy to every child, creating confident, happy preschoolers.
As 4-year-olds approach kindergarten we put added focus, during the second half of the year, on enriching their listening skills, fine motor skills, strengthening their social and emotional development, and bringing an opportunity to increase reading readiness and literacy skills. Also, early math skills, sequencing and problem solving are reinforced. Our goal is to increase self-esteem and the confidence that is needed for a full day kindergarten program.
