The Nurtury Preschool is a Christian preschool, located on the campus of Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church. We provide a safe, loving enrichment program for children ages 2 years until Kindergarten attendance.
Developmentally appropriate, engaging themes are taught and experienced each week. We believe all children have a desire to learn and master their environment. We also believe children have different learning styles, temperaments and past experiences that influence how they perceive their world. We certainly have a strong curriculum, the key in our view, is to discover how each child learns and absorbs information so that each child is able to benefit from our strong curriculum. We teach the child vs teach the curriculum. The classrooms will look playful and full of wonder because they are – learning is a wonderful experience!
Great teachers are the key to a great school. Our lead teachers are highly educated and trained in Early Childhood Education and the psychology of young children. Our assistant teachers are highly skilled and are dedicated to the care of each child. We are very grateful for the expertise and long-term consistency that our staff provides.
Because character matters, the Nurtury staff models Jesus’ love and care to each other, their students and families. Nurtury Preschool has excellent teacher-child ratios so that the teachers have the time and opportunity to coach children during “learning opportunities” versus “policing” the classroom simply to keep it safe. We see children’s inappropriate choices as a learning opportunity . Our goal is that children will take responsibility for their actions, fix wrong doings and gain self-regulation and a sense of positive empowerment. We learn how to enter play groups, make friends, take turns, appropriately communicate our needs and ideas, find information, stay on task, be respectful of ourselves, each other and authority figures.The Nurtury Preschool
