Our Faculty


Round Hill Nursery School is fortunate to have a faculty that come from diverse life experiences, educational backgrounds and perspectives, unified by a sincere care and respect for our children and families. Teachers observe the children to assess their educational needs and set appropriate individual and group goals. Learning goals for your child include all aspects of growth and are grouped into four domains: Personal and Social, Physical, Cognitive and Creative Development. This process of planning and observing and continuously repeating the cycle ensures that not only are your child’s developmental needs being met, but they are continuously challenged to their fullest potential. Emphasis is placed on teachers and children engaging in active exploration, oral language, higher order thinking and integration of basic skills. These elements promote the development of language competence, learning through active engagement, encouraging children to use complex thinking and teaching children through rich conversational exchanges that take place during play.
