Resources at the Nurtury

Foreign Language (Spanish) - The Nurtury's faculty has chosen to respond to research which states that exposure to a second language at a young age enhances overall development. Bilingual education stimulates a child's brain development, increases imaginative and abstract thought and promotes flexible thinking.

Art, Music, Physical Education, Computer Learning - Research unequivocally directs preschools to incorporate these activities into the moment-by-moment curriculum rather than teaching them as "special classes." Our degreed teachers are trained in these subjects; they are included at the very core of the curriculum.

Memories - We cherish childhood. Consequently we equip families with "memory retrievers" that will last a lifetime. For example: photos of birthdays, Halloween, photo ornaments for Christmas trees, first-day pictures for full-day children; special books with pictures of friends; Mother's day handprints; dictated thoughts; permanent art treasures.

Mixed-age Grouping for Full-day Children - Full day children between the ages of 3 and 5 are in mixed-age "family groupings," except for their Development classes each morning during the school year. They do not leave their friends, siblings and teachers to change rooms on every birthday. Because we must meet the ratio for the youngest child in the group, this type of program is not cost-effective; but it is CHILD-effective, so we do it!

A University Resource The Nurtury hosts students from the University of Akron, Kent State, Cuyahoga Community College, Lorain County Community College and Medina Career Center as student teachers and participant/observers. One-way windows encourage observation by parents and other interested community adults.
