Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Our Nursery Program
Provides for a rich and safe learning environment for emotional, social and physical development. We believe in providing a strong foundation to children for lifelong learning and nurturing abilities to ensure future success. Dreaming Child does not replace the home – it complements it with the intent to provide a stimulating, creative, positive, and secure learning environment in order to develop the child’s overall skills and self-concept.
Personal attention is at the core of what we do, maintaining an envious teacher student ratio of 1:8.
About the Program
Our Nursery Program focuses on giving each child a platform for his/her creative expressions. The children are now ready for decision making and independently executing all educational projects. Their curiosity and cognitive abilities grow rapidly, as they are put into a challenging environment letting them observe, question, communicate, participate, predict, experiment and deduce results. Focus is given to each child to form attitudes, establish values and develop strong social bonds.
