Daily schedule

Group Time

Activities include finger plays and stories, songs, poems, calendar- and theme-related discussions. Show & Tell times provide opportunities for sharing personal stories and experiences. Letter and number recognition, which includes phonemic awareness, is also included.

     

Art Activities

Craft activities help children learn to listen and follow multi-step directions while completing a fun project to take home. They are able to practice fine motor skills using scissors, glue, markers, and crayons. Children paint each week, and a variety of techniques are presented.

     

Play

Each of our days has a “Free Choice” time. We have play equipment and do go outside to play when the weather permits. All classrooms contain climbers and other large play equipment as well as table games, blocks, housekeeping areas, and sand tables.

     

Snacks

We provide refreshments each day. Parents are encouraged to provide snacks for birthday celebrations or other occasions.

     

Music

Singing, musical instruments and CDs for motor movements and dance are used on a daily basis.

   

Story Time

Reading a story is a wonderful conclusion to our school day. We use a variety of literature appropriate for each age group.

     

Field Trips

Our 4-year-old students walk to the Batavia Public Library each month for story time. Other field trips may include visits to a pumpkin farm, Funway for bowling, a firehouse and a local play production.

     

Tours are available during the morning on regular school days. To schedule a tour, please call us at 630-879-9470 or email us at Office@BataviaNurserySchool.org. Tours include observations of ongoing classes.
