The 2-Day Class is meant to be the young child’s first independent experience at nursery school. The goals are that each child learns that school is a safe, positive place and that learning is fun. We work on helping each child become independent from mom or dad, and in a way that is comfortable for both the parent and child. The philosophy is that each child will separate from the parent once he/she feels safe and has developed a connection with the teacher and/or other parents in the class. We work with each individual family to accomplish this goal.

Children learn through play, therefore the focus of the 3-Day Class is to provide the appropriate play in which children can develop their social, cognitive, and emotional selves, along with further mastering their fine and gross motor skills. Building a child’s self esteem is also central to the SJPPNS philosophy. Self esteem and the ability to learn are interdependent. The 3 Day curriculum supports that philosophy.
