Hello and welcome!  

As you can see in the pictures above, we have been very busy!  

During our circle time activities, we are always having fun with our hands on activities and projects, but we are actually working hard on our skills!  Math skills are something we are super good at!  Adding, subtracting, graphing, measuring, categorizing and learning numerical order are all skills we are working on mastering.  We are also building our small and large motor skills and motor planning through music, dance, exercise and yoga poses.  We love to have our "plank challenge" every day to see who can stay up the longest.  Ask them to show you how!

 In the classroom we love our projects during "skill building".  Painting, glueing and cutting with scisors are daily tasks that are both fun and important!  We are also learning our alphabet and practicing using our letter sounds to make words.  We are now learning how to blend our letters together to make words as we are beginning to read!!   

We hope you enjoy the pictures with your child.  It may spark some wonderful conversation about their days at Sunset.

Why choose Sunset Nursery School for your child's early education?

Sunset is an academically strong, play with a purpose, Christian school.  We are not a school of one faith, however, we celebrate different faiths and cultures and focus on the golden rule, "Doing to others as we would have them do unto you".  We support the preschool Common Core program in a child-friendly and appropriate manner. The focus is on literacy and math skills using the Pre-K NYS common core program that compliments the NYS CC kindergarten program,  so they are ready when they move on to the elementary school.  Also, on a daily basis, they will enjoy art, dance, spanish, yoga, sign language, Go No Sen Kinderkicks, Minday Sax music, cooking, science and more!  Our  focus is on strengthening your child's God given talents, and we place a high emphasis on building independence, self esteem and individuality.   With our 5 dynamic centers in the main room, the children have daily "free play".  It is important to never underestimate the importance play has in a pre-school program.  There must be an opportunity for center time play incorporated into their day.  Play allows for creativity and the development of their imagination.  It teaches emotional control, appropriate social interaction and healthy brain development and it is an integral part of their early childhood experience.  

Thumbs up for math!!

Math is SUPER!
