Three Year Old Program

 

Our three year old program meets on Thursdays and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  Children must turn three by September 15th of that enrollment year and be potty-trained to be eligible for the three-year-old class.  The three-year-old class has a maximum of 18 students. The ratio will be 1 adult:8 students at all times.  At Nisse your child has the advantage of having three teachers in the classroom, allowing for a 1 adult: 6 student ration and more individual attention.

 

Tuition is $125/month. We request that you sign up for auto-withdrawal of your monthly tuition payment, which will come out the first weekday of the month, October through April.  First and last month’s tuition (September and May) are due with registration packets, prior to the start of school.

 

Healthy snacks are served each morning, usually between 9 & 10 am. Families take turns bringing the snack for a week, in line with the “Suggested Snack Calendar” to ensure a variety of healthy foods are served to your child while at school.

We utilize the Creative Curriculum for Preschool and focus on four main areas of child development, including: social/emotional development; physical development; cognitive development, and language development.  We also have objectives for learning in the development areas of: literacy, mathematics, science and technology, social studies, and the arts.

 

Our classroom is set up in learning “centers”, which include blocks, dramatic play, books, gross motor, fine motor, science, discovery play, listening, writing, and art.  Outdoor play is important to a child’s physical development and is included in the daily schedule.  Self-selection is also a daily part of the curriculum and means a child has the opportunity to choose which center or activity he/she participates in.  This promotes creative expression and development of important social skills.
