First United is a community of families and teachers that share in the experience of teaching, inspiring and guiding young children. We recognize parents as a child’s first and most important teacher and a partner with the classroom teacher in the child’s school experience.
The nursery school program supports the development of the child through an early educational experience based on play. Play promotes key abilities that provide children a solid base for later school success including cognitive, physical, social and emotional growth. The child’s curiosity, creativity, confidence and initiative are encouraged and supported at First United Church Nursery School in an atmosphere of warmth and respect for each individual child. Interest centers are established in the classrooms to encourage children’s learning through investigation, exploration and problem solving, which all promote positive attitudes about learning .
