St Mark's

Nursery School

& Childcare

 

One of the most important decisions a parent can make is the choice of a preschool for their child.

At St. Mark's  Nursery School & Childcare, we understand the love and concern that goes into this decision. We provide a developmental program, one that supports and allows children to grow to their best potential. 
We encourage you to visit our school and look forward to getting to know both you and your child. 

 

In our classrooms, we follow a combination of the

Creative Curriculum style and Handwriting Without Tears Curriculum.

Our learning centers and play areas are filled with fun and stimulating educational activities. We also provide learning through one to one and small group instruction using the Handwriting Without Tears Curriculum in beginning reading skills as well as early math skills, fine motor strengthening activities and creative projects that reflect the weekly focus.

Daily Circle Time is also an important part of our classroom. Here children will not only learn academics in a large group setting but focus on important skills such as waiting for a turn, encouraging a friend, listening and answering a question or playing with many friends at once.

We strive to help each child reach their potential in a fun, encouraging and safe environment.

Thanks to our Music Academy we have a music program that is offered to all classes.

Pastor Jay also spend time with each class reading Bible stories and answering questions.
