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!
