Morning Star Nursery 6wks-3yrs
About MSCS Nursery:
At Morning Star Christian School, our ECE program is not only a daycare, but what we consider a preschool preparation program. We want our program to be extension of the preschool so the children are prepared to transition with ease.
To preserve the quality of our program, we want to keep low ratios so that each child in our care can have more individual time and attention with our teachers.
- Infants 1:4
- Toddlers 1:4
- Junior Preschool 1:5
All of our ECE rooms are staffed with highly trained teaching teams who are dedicated to loving the children & their families in a warm, caring environment. Our purpose is to be an extension of the family, who will care for the emotional, social, developmental and educational growth of your child. We communicate with our families each day, giving a log of the child’s day in our care. We also offer year-round care, with only 1 full week off at the end of August (and a few holidays throughout the year) so our teachers can attend training’s that fulfill their continuing education.
As a preschool preparation program, our days are more structured than the average daycare. After initial check in, we invite the children to engage in a variety of hands on learning activities while allowing the children to explore with play dough, sensory tables, letters, or writing. The kids enjoy art each day, usually corresponding to a monthly theme (such as farm animals, bugs, weather, etc.). We also provide sign language for the classes once a week, to help with language and communication development. Our teachers also involve the children in daily learning activities and stories that teach them about the Bible. When the weather permits, we take the children outside to play on our very own age appropriate playground designed to meet all gross motor activities. We take daily walks as a group around our 11-acre campus and utilize our school gymnasium when the weather restricts our outside play. We have a 2-hour rest period during the day but understand that not every child will nap so we have staff who will have a quiet time with these children instead. A couple times a year, we provide in-house field trip activities (such as a pumpkin patch in the classroom). Our staff provides nutritious snack both in the morning and afternoon.
