Special Instruction at CCNS
The children of Christ Church Nursery School have always been offered special instruction. Music classes by our certified music teacher happen weekly for all. Classes are held in the multipurpose area in the gym and are full of songs, musical instruments, movement and lots of fun!
In addition to music, our Pre-K classes are also offered a weekly Spanish lesson with our experienced Spanish teacher. Our physical education teacher also comes in weekly. During gym classes children work to develop their gross motor and coordination skills as they work together in group games and sports. Our Handwriting Workshop is another weekly activity reserved for our older children. Using the Handwriting without Tears program, our Handwriting Teacher works with children in small groups from all of our Pre-K classes. Once a month our children also visit our school Library. After our school Librarian reads to the children, they get to choose a book to borrow. They learn so much about authors, books and literary awards from our school Librarian.
NEW this year, our Pre-K classes will also meet bi-monthly with our CCNS Gardner who will focus on helping the children understand the concept of composting and the life cycle of plants. The children will also work with our Gardner in own very outdoor classroom to grow vegetables and herbs. We started our garden in June and the children enjoyed planting young seedlings and watching them grow. We are growing peppers, basil, beans, oregano, pumpkins and more! We even have our very own butterfly bush. The garden is lush already and will only grow more each day under the care of our Gardner and her many assistants!
