A Gym Tale's Nursery School Program

Registration is now open for Fall 2015 Nursery School! It has been brought to my attention that many people do not actually know what the Nursery School set up looks like - it is very different from play classes and birthday parties. This post will show you what the learning space looks like as well as a bit about the program. Please feel free to call or email anytime to organize a tour.

The Nursery School program is a drop off program for children 2.5 years to 4 years of age. We offer a morning (9-11:30) and an afternoon program (12:15-2:45) on Monday, Wednesday and Friday with the option of 1, 2 or 3 days a week. The program runs from September 2015 - June 2016.

The children participate in a Reggio inspired classroom prepared to entice children to explore science, math, language, manipulatives and building, reading, writing and dramatic play. Children take part in circle times, an introduction to French (through songs, calendar and stories), stories, music, open ended art, sensory play, group games and always ending with gym time! The program moves quickly keeping little ones busy but offers plenty of opportunities for choices and creativity.

Language activities, letters, writing centre in far corner and blue table for group activities.
Building and manipulative activities

Science activities on shelf and dramatic play area which changes bi-weekly

Writing centre to encourage doodles, drawings and early writing skills.

Table for group activities and cozy, covered reading area for sharing stories.

The Nursery School program also includes plenty of special activities such as a trip to the grocery store during our food theme, visits from pets, the dentist, Fire trucks, construction workers and many other community helpers. We also enjoy Holiday concerts, teddy bear picnics and an end of year graduation ceremony.

My bulldog loves his annual visits:)

And of course the last 30 minutes is always gym time which alternates between the gymnastics equipment and the playground.

Spaces still remain for the 2015-2016 school year. For more details please visit the website (, email, call or visit and we would love to show you around!
