PNS adheres to age-appropriate, developmental approach with a curriculum designed to enhance a child’s social, physical, and intellectual growth. The academic emphasis, which is subtle and unpressured, is built around the concept of “learning through play.”
As children play, they learn to solve problems, to get along with others, and to develop the fine and gross motor skills to grow and learn.
At PNS, we incorporate creative arts, science, outdoor activities, physical education, music, math, dramatic play, storytelling, and language arts into every class. We carefully select the materials and purposefully plan hands-on experiences that will allow each child to be challenged and succeed at their own developmental level.
Founded on the premise that parents and teachers should work cooperatively in the education process, PNS encourages parents to play a major role in the classroom. We invite all families to co-op, essentially assisting teachers in the classroom on a rotating basis.
Tuition is discounted to those families able to participate in the co-op program. Full and half co-op options are available.
