At Bouncing Ball Co-operative Nursery School our programs are designed to support and nurture your child’s growth in all areas of development for JK and Elementary School.
Our morning classes are structured for children who are entering preschool for the first time. Emphasis is placed on following school routines to foster independence.
Children will have the opportunity to learn to share, co-operate and problem solve with the teachers and their peers which are an essential part of school preparedness. Fine motor skills, preschool concepts and name recognition are incorporated into the weekly programming. Exploring new interests and love of learning are fostered through many diverse activities.
Kindergarten Prep program
Our afternoon classes are structured for the older preschooler who has either already completed the morning classes and/or has just missed the age criteria to be enrolled in kindergarten.
Children must be toilet trained, be able to follow routine and work independently. Class sizes are smaller than the morning program and all spaces are for non participating parents. While additional structure and and an emphasis on academics are introduced, the program continues to promote learning through play.
Here are some examples of how Bouncing Ball Cooperative Nursery School fosters your children's love of learning:
Cognitive: Thinking skills are developed by puzzles, memory games, circle time, problem solving, games, songs, creative play, Jolly Phonics and many more activities.
Fine Motor: Developed through cutting, gluing, painting, writing, small toy manipulation, playdough, finger-plays and so much more.
Gross motor: Activities include dancing, jumping, hopping and action songs.
Social/Emotional: Self-esteem and confidence are developed by playing with peers, co-operative games, sharing and taking turns.
Language: Vocabulary and sentence structure are improved by participating in conversations with peers and teacher, pretend play, listening to stories and learning theme-related vocabulary.
