In this class, we continue to give the students the stable routine they need while providing more encouragement for independence. Although nursery children are also taught through the use of play, songs, stories and hands-on activities in a more challenging level, they are also introduced to concepts of prints and mark-making. Perhaps, the most notable difference between Nursery and Early Nursery is that Nursery students begin to learn and use some of the academic skills that a preschool student needs such as turning pages of a book correctly and show more focus and attention on chosen activities for longer periods. They are learning to move their bodies safely through our learning spaces. They begin to understand that others may have different perspectives to their own and begins to practice sharing and taking turns. They grow more independence in eating appropriately, putting on their shoes and socks, and managing their personal hygiene. Intellectual development is rapidly developing and they learn to communicate in sentences.
