Timeless Teachings in a Changing World
At Nana’s Place Learning Center, children have the opportunity to gain practice in cognitive, language, fine motor, large motor, social-emotional, and self-help skills through developmentally appropriate practice techniques. These skills will help your child build his/her self-esteem and prepare him/her for future skills. Each child is treated with respect and love and is offered a positive learning atmosphere.
Nana's offers a wide range of learning activities, curriculum, and supplemental materials in an effort to develop and inspire young minds. In addition, we provide experiential learning opportunities when age appropriate.
We are also proud partners with the MECK Pre-K and NC Pre-K preschool programs. The application for our 4-year-old programs can be found on our parent resource page by clicking the MECK or NC Pre-K application link.
ALL 4-year-olds must be 4 by Aug. 31st of the school year in which they desire to enroll.
We proudly use A Beka and The Creative Curriculum for teaching instruction. We provide an environment for "Learning Beyond The Walls", where students learn outside of the classroom through various field trips and service projects. Our curriculum offers valuable concepts to enrich the learning environment, with special emphasis on phonics, emergent readers, math skills, science, social skills, motor skills development, and technology.
Read below for a brief summary of our programs.
Pre-School Age Range: 3 years to 5 years
This program is designed to offer your child the skills and techniques necessary to engage and prepare your child for an awesome Kindergarten experience. The core curriculum of "Nana's Place" preschool program is the ABeka Program in addition to supplemental academic experiences designed by the Director.
In order to provide the highest quality care and education, we promote parental involvement and commitment as we believe it is absolutely essential. Parents are asked to participate in field trips and parent meetings. Parent -Teacher conferences are an integral part of tracking your child's success and membership and participation is required in our Parent-Teacher Association (PTA).
The goal is for every child to leave our preschool reading and performing math skills on or above the Kindergarten level. While these academic skills are impressive, we want to produce well-rounded, socially adept students as well. We shape the "whole" child.
