Practically Preschool – nursery school for NYC kids

Nursery school program in NYC - Practically Preschool by Discovery Programs

Alternative Nursery School

Our alternative nursery school is a small lively program for children ages three to four years old. Our preschool program which includes classroom learning, creative expression and full body gymnastic experience, builds the children’s community and develops their problem solving and socialization skills.

Meaningfully integrated into this 2-3 day nursery program are the underpinnings of formal preschool learning. Children “read” the job chart and contribute at meeting time. Clean-up and snack times are important aspects of each preschooler’s day, as are small field trips and outdoor play.

In the nursery program, we foster mathematical thinking through block building, puzzles and patterning activities. Large and small art activities, such as painting, clay, collage and paper construction, spark new interest in color and texture. Water, sand play and cooking are springboards for scientific exploration and allow children to ask questions, experiment and hypothesize. Language and literacy grow naturally from rich nursery and preschool experience. Children can pretend together, respond to stories, listen for rhymes and match letters to sounds.

Parents have said that Discovery’s program is a fun and welcoming first introduction to nursery school. Practically Preschool is just right for parents that do not want a five day nursery school experience, for parents looking for an intermediary year before public pre-k and for parents that are looking to supplement their child’s part time school schedule.

‘Practically Plus’

This Friday option extends children’s Practically Preschool experience through an optional third school day. Here, youngsters engage in gym, theater and science fun.
