General Class Outline

At AHCNS, we believe that a children’s play is their work.  Our materials and equipment are selected specifically for developing preschoolers.  We guide children to use these materials constructively and creatively.  Our professional nursery school teachers are all certified by the State of Maryland.  Each day, designated adults serve as the classroom assistants or co-opers.  Our teachers base classroom activities on the psycho-social, cognitive, language, and physical development skills appropriate to the age of the class.  Children are encouraged to communicate their own individuality through creative art and expressive play.

From October through May, our 3- and 4-year-old students are offered the opportunity to attend additional instructional classes (the “Lunch Bunch”) after the regular school day.  An emphasis is given to the arts, sciences, languages, and math.  Children bring their own lunch and remain at school an additional 1½ hours beyond the regular school day.  Students sign up for two week sessions, which are $35 per session and billed with your monthly tuition.
