Play-based but planned


Although we offer a play-based program, there is a difference between play which is done at school and that which is done at home.  Primarily, students attending our full-time, five days a week program, have access to a carefully planned timetable which seeks to develop the whole child – from communication skills to expressive arts and, increasingly important at this age, social skills. From the children’s perspective, they are just playing, but from the teachers’ perspective, they are building their literacy skills, working on simple math concepts and learning to be a kind and considerate classmate.  Children who are with us each and every day benefit from this carefully considered planning.  Teachers also use the time in the afternoon to fill in gaps in learning and to build on previous learning.  In the afternoons, many of the activities complement what was already done in the morning, which serves as an opportunity to cement and further build on previous learning.  These activities include, but are not limited to, stories, songs, the Spanish language, dance, math and phonics. 

The opportunity to keep learning: The most important thing that our full time 2s students stand to gain is never missing an opportunity to learn something new!  Our teachers have a breadth of experience in educating two year olds and understand the privilege as well as the pleasure of being the ones to expose them to new challenges and opportunities every single day in school.

Nutritious food and social experiences


Aside from the learning, children in our full-time program have access to a nutritious menu, cooked on-site each day by our team of chefs. Students are given help to eat independently in a group situation in their classroom so that they are ready for the following year in Nursery, where they will eat with limited support in the busy school cafeteria.



Transitioning to Nursery at 3 years old


All children are encouraged to rest after lunch, but activities are ready for them once they are ready to play.  Throughout the course of the year, students are slowly transitioned to a 2pm wake-up so that they are ready for Nursery after the summer.  Since all Nursery students are expected to be full time at the beginning of the year, our full time 2s program offers a gentle introduction to the schedule of Nursery. 



Extended care for working parents


We also offer a rich and engaging after school program to all students who are full time at NAISNY.  Each day, there are different activities and games as well as songs, dancing and crafts.  Children also have full use of the large playroom during this time so they can use up any remaining energy!
