"If children don't learn the way we teach them, then we must teach them the way they learn."
Dunn and Dunn
The mission of early childhood education at Weekday Nursery School is to develop a love of learning and develop a lifelong dedication to learning from the outset of a child’s formal education.
Each classroom is designed specifically to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of young children. Each classroom has a Head teacher and an assistant teacher and depending on the number of children, a classroom aide. Our early childhood head teachers hold advanced degrees in early childhood education while the assistant teachers hold a bachelors, an associates or a CDA.
The early childhood education program at Weekday is guided by a philosophy of progressive, developmental learning based on the model: “play is the work of young children.” The curriculum for our two’s is developed with the same expertise, care, and attention as the curricula for our Senior Pre-K program. Students have ample opportunity to develop language arts, math, science, and motor skills, as well as social and emotional development. It is understood that each child will progress through these accomplishments according to his or her own timetable. All of these goals are met by using a multi sensory approach to learning.
