As part of the rich curriculum experienced in the preschool classrooms, Christ Church Nursery School in Short Hills offers several specialty classes for their four and five-year-old students.
Weekly, students run and jump with the gym teacher, develop their printing skills with the handwriting teacher and sing, read and draw with the Spanish teacher. Twice a month, the school gardener teaches the children about the life of plants and composting as children help to nurture the school garden.
To further foster a love of reading, the librarian reads with the children monthly, and students borrow a book to bring home to share with their families. In addition to all of that, every class at CCNS meets weekly to sing and dance with the music teacher.
