NOW ENROLLING FOR FALL
Classes begin August 29th, 2022
Downey United Methodist Nursery School began in 1965 with one director and a single teacher. The simple idea of beginning each new day with love and understanding has grown into four classrooms, five mornings a week. Our purpose is to provide children a loving environment where they may grow, develop, learn and be equipped for future education. The program is designed to meet the developmental needs of young children 2 1/2-5 years of age. It provides experiences that enrich and enhance each child's cognitive, language, social, emotional, physical and creative development.
A child's work is PLAY! In play, children are learning how to learn. They are exploring and experimenting as they build relationships with their world and themselves. We encourage the six C's: Confidence, Competence, Cooperation, Coordination, Consideration, and Compassion. Our goal is to create a stimulating environment to promote the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of each child.
We believe in using a child-centered approach to learning with the teacher as role model and guide. Teachers will be responsible for providing age-appropriate learning opportunities and will enable each child to learn at their own pace. Our experienced staff meets the training and education required by the state for preschool educators.
The philosophy of Downey United Methodist Nursery School is based on the belief that children
* grow toward self-reliance and healthy independence
* develop positive feelings of self-worth and inner-strength
* learn to interact with others, respecting their rights and feelings
* learn to solve problems and resolve conflicts by expressing their feelings in appropriate ways, and
* grow toward physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual maturity
