Before the age of seven, children experience everything in their world through the impulse to imitate.  Children entering our nursery class find a sanctuary where they can confidently move, play and explore in a homelike environment with experienced educators prepared to support their development with a peaceful, caring approach.  The rhythm of the day is balanced between lively and quiet activities that reflect the child’s need for active play, meaningful social interaction, and attentive focus.  Free play, songs, movement games, bread making, snack preparation and cleanup, seasonal crafts, storytelling, and puppetry weave the pattern of the day.  The children experience the natural world during outside play in the El Jardin del Paraiso Community Garden.

The care and reverence that teachers bring to their work gives the children a worthy example to imitate.
