The program at Rockville Nursery School and Kindergarten is designed to provide for the total growth of a child within an environment in which children are encouraged to explore, pretend, create, express feelings, display emotion and experience joy. As we bridge the gap between home and school, we guide children toward a good self-image while helping them to develop their skills.
Our teachers strive to provide experiences that are relevant to a child’s age and social- emotional growth, and intellectual needs. Children are provided with activities and learning tasks that support the learning process by “hands-on” experiences. Ongoing brain research supports our belief that learning by doing results in long-term benefits.
The staff provides guidance, assistance and the necessary materials to promote opportunities for appropriate experiences, in a pressure free environment, so that the child can explore and learn. Thought comes from action, not from words. Children, therefore, learn best from concrete experience, from “doing,” rather than from “hearing about.” Play (learning) is planned which emphasizes the process more than the product, fostering a sense of accomplishment and pride in every child.
RNS&K believes that children have the right to experience trust without which learning cannot take place. Children have the right to be given opportunities to be in control, to have friends, to feel safe and secure, to be able to change things, to feel welcomed and loved and to have fun.
