Bethel Nursery School is a State Licensed Private Nursery School and as such is able to create it's own curriculum and child-centered activities. We do not have a rigid or strict curriculum that we follow from year to year because each year the children in our classrooms shape how we teach. We do, however, have principals and philosophies that we base our teaching methods, lessons and activities on.
Our number one goal, however, is to create a SAFE, CARING environment where children can learn in a DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE way. This means you will not find a lot of papers and busy work. You will see a lot of beautiful preschool art work that was created by children while they learned how to follow directions, count the correct number of objects to add and identify the colors they used. You will also see a lot of play – because we believe that preschoolers do a significant amount of learning from each other and their social interaction. You will also see teachers talking to their students because a lot of the learning that little ones do at this age is through talking, sharing and listening.
