The Wilton Family Y Nursery School is a state-licensed learning program for 3-5 year olds, with a 1-to-8 ratio of teachers to children. The program seeks to provide a nurturing environment that builds upon your child’s natural curiosity, imagination and creativity.
The overall philosophy of the program is that children learn best by participating in hands-on activities. Classrooms are set up for center-based learning: easels, blocks, dramatic play, art, water table, library corner, math, and science. Children can choose activities based on their own interests.
The concept of whole language learning is presented as the pre-reading element of the program, and is introduced into the classroom in a variety of ways: stories read to children, songs, chants, finger plays, poems and taking children’s dictation. Children are introduced to activities that help develop a connection between speaking and listening, which can enhance reading skills in Kindergarten and elementary school.
A major goal of the Y Nursery School is to promote each child’s good health and physical well being by developing large muscle strengths through swimming and creative movement. In addition to the basic school day, outdoor play, swimming lessons, gym time, dance and music are important parts of the program for large motor skill development.
