Half Day Programs
Weems Creek Nursery School is your quintessential nursery school. We offer half day programs taught by outstanding early education teachers and assistants who provide a balance between individual freedom and daily routines and guidance. Our teachers encourage creative self-expression, development of self-confidence, and constructive self-discipline. In a typical program, a child can experience free-choice play with a variety of materials/equipment joined with small group projects and activities. Stories, snack, music and the learning circle bring the group together. Many activities go on simultaneously where the teachers help, encourage, supervise and join the fun. Our play-based curriculum emphasizes social-emotional, cognitive and fine and gross motor skills. What begins in our Young 3s class is further enriched in subsequent years. Some highlights from our curriculum include:
