Sunset has "FRESH-AIR" classrooms!
With our four "fresh-air classrooms" our students spend a lot of time outside. During the fall and spring we spend almost 100% of our time outdoors. During the winter months, we alternate going inside and outside. Even when it is chilly, we still enjoy the fresh air!
Our day is full of hands on learning that is fun! Circle time, calendar time, music, art, yoga, skill building, snack and (of course) play time!
When we are inside, our space is large, open and bright. The space is well-ventalated and we have two Air Doctor air
The environment, routine and curriculum are unique and we invite you to come in and see the difference.

The Petite Picasso Art show at the Hendrick Hudson Free Library was a little different this year, however, the "show must go on"... and it did! The artist's paintings were displayed during the month of March and they made appointments to view them with their families.
Life is "regular" here at Sunset for our little ones, and it has been wonderful!

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.
