The Robin Hood Country Day School Nursery
School Program was established in 1957. The school runs
from September to June, for three and four year olds.
We are registered by the New York State Department of
Education and have an absolute charter from them to
operate a nursery school during the year and a summer
program for 3-14 year olds during July and August.
The three and four year olds have a choice
of a 5 day morning session. The afternoon session is offered
on a three or five day basis. The rates for these sessions
are on the enrollment application.
Our curriculum focuses on the needs of the
individual child. Ultimately the goal is to meet the
child's needs emotionally, intellectually and socially
and to enhance the child's self-image. The child will
be prepared for Kindergarten with a program to develop
readiness skills in an atmosphere that encourages learning
through play and hands-on experience. In the supportive
classroom environment the child will meet situations
that will teach him/her how to deal with frustration,
build confidence, learn responsibility and cope with
fears. The child will establish relationships with peers,
learn to interact and most importantly, to share. We
will accomplish these goals with a program rich in varied
learning experiences. We pride ourselves on having a
wealth of materials to enrich our curriculum and provide
your child with games, toys and equipment of the finest
quality available in our field.
Our program of Language Arts, Mathematics,
Science, Social Studies, Music and Outdoor Play facilities
the active involvement of the child in the learning process.
In conclusion our objectives will instill a positive feeling
towards school and learning and encourage a spirit of curiosity
and inquiry in the individual child. Our teachers are licensed
in Early Childhood Education by the New York State Department
What makes our school unique are special

is fun when children are actively involved in meaningful learning
experiences. This stage of childhood is very precious and
the growth is so amazing. We pride ourselves on our communication

conferences and visits. We are always open to and welcome
