At The Adventure Nook, we see children as curious, skillful learners yearning to succeed. We believe that children’s compassion, empathy, and capabilities are strengthened when respectful attention is given to their words and actions. Teachers at The Adventure Nook emphasize the development of each child by providing age appropriate and active learning opportunities in a variety of learning domains.
Mother’s Day Out (MDO) serves Toddler I, Toddler II, and Transitional Threes consisting of children ages 12 - 35 months. Our preschool (PreK) program serves children 3 and 4 years of age. All classes provide the environment and instruction for each child at his or her individual level of need and growth.
We believe learning is a life-long process. Our goal is to help each child to create meaningful, relevant, and powerful connections to the real world.
Our enriching environment allows children to wonder while feeling secure, taking risks, enjoying self-discovery, and sharing ideas. We strive for a balanced, nurturing, caring and developmentally appropriate approach to education.
A TYPICAL DAY
Circle Time/Story Time: Circle time is a special time of gathering for the children during which they share songs, finger plays, rhymes, read stories, and participate in movement activities and relaxation games.
