The Curriculum at Round Hill Nursery School offers our children experiences which encourage growth in social, physical, cognitive and creative areas. Activities which focus on gross and fine motor skills, language development, pre-reading, pre-writing and pre-math skills, the creative arts and social and emotional growth are the emphasis of our program.
Our curriculum utilizes a hands-on approach to learning through risk taking and investigating in a safe and supportive environment. Individual differences, readiness levels and learning styles among our students are recognized and appreciated by our experienced faculty.
We enrich our program with field trips to Greenwich Audubon for Wildlife in Winter, SUNY Purchase for an introduction to the excitement of live theater, The Fairchild Gardens for an autumn scavenger hunt and to the Bruce Museum and Stamford Nature Center. We also provide on-site enrichment with visits from Dinosaurs Rock, Oceans Rock, The Bartlett Arboretum, and Animal Embassy.
Of utmost importance, however is the understanding that children learn best through play. At Round Hill Nursery School, we make sure to provide ample play time for our young students.
THE UPPER SCHOOL PROGRAM
First Step Teachers
Three Year Old Teachers
Four Year Old Teachers
The children come together I small groups as they paint a mural, work with clay, and/or participate in an activity (art, cooking, science and/or nature, etc.,) which reinforces a unit of study.
A “special” subject: Four days per week our children receive instruction in art, music and physical education. In the music program, the children come to appreciate different styles of music while becoming comfortable performing before an audience. In the art program, our young students have an opportunity to work with different materials as they draw, mold, paint and sculpt. The gym program provides not only general exercise but an introduction to sports such as soccer, floor hockey and t-ball.
