Are you a new parent looking to enroll your child at Nurtury? Below is a sample of a child’s typical day at Nurtury. We provide opportunities to meet individual and group needs through a broad range of learning activities such as music, cooking, science, play (indoor and outdoor), art, language, and games.
Drop Off, Breakfast
Parents drop little ones off at their center or provider home. Children eat a nutritionally-balanced breakfast, planned by our Director of Nutrition, Janet Rose. All meals are eaten “family-style” around a table, where children can have conversations with their teachers and classmates. As the children filter in and eat their breakfast, they can participate in the activity of their choice, such as coloring pictures, playing with building blocks, or dramatic play.
Group and Individual Activities, Outdoor Play, Field Trips
Children follow the activity led by the classroom’s Lead Teacher. Activities are timely and engage the children in the world around them, for example: reading books about Rosa Parks during Black History Month, crafting paper hearts in February, or making bumblebees out of play dough during the summertime.
Children enjoy a nutritionally-balanced lunch together.
Little ones wake up well-rested and ready for a healthy afternoon snack.
Group and Individual Activites, Free Play, Outdoor Play, Second Snack, Pick Up
Children will engage in some combination of group/individual activities and free or outdoor play, depending on what the Lead Teacher has planned. Sixty minutes of physical activity is provided daily. A second snack is provided before children leave for the day.
*Schedules for younger children are more flexible since their needs for naps vary. Daily schedules and weekly curriculum are posted in each classroom.
