St. Alban’s Nursery Programme
Saint Alban’s Nursery Programme for children aged 2 to 5 was founded in 1978.While the Nursery is an outreach ministry of Saint Alban’s Church, the Nursery Programme is nondenominational and children are welcomed from all religious backgrounds while encouraging respect and tolerance for all.
Pre-school education in a respected English program based on Montessori methods and Christian concern for all children. Classes Tuesday-Thursday or Monday-Wednesday-Friday. Class size 15 students.
School’s aim is to provide purposeful and stimulating early childhood activities, to enhance each child’s growth and development. They believe that the early years are the most important time for exploration and discovery and that children need opportunities to create, play, make friends and learn while having fun. The programme offers each child an atmosphere of warmth, understanding and a place to develop, both as an individual and as part of a group.
School offers an extensive range of materials and activities based on the well-established principles of the Montessori method. Nursery Programme introduces the first steps of reading, writing, number work and nature in a simple, creative and enjoyable way. Daily emphasis is placed on the creative arts; there are many opportunities for children to enjoy singing, dancing, storytelling, simple drama and artwork. School meets each day in a spacious, bright and beautiful hall that is attached to the church. Although the curriculum is structured, each child moves through at his or her own pace.
In addition to the spacious indoor facilities where our comprehensive educational and creative programme takes place, we have a large fenced and safety floored playground in a tranquil setting surrounded by trees, bushes and flowers. The church has ample parking available at the Nursery, making dropping off and picking up your children safe and easy.
Our programme offers each child an atmosphere of warmth, understanding and a place to develop, both as an individual and as a part of a group.
We know that your child is special! When you share that special person with us, you can be confident that he or she will be receiving the very best quality of care and attention.
