ENDICOTT FIRST PRESBYTERIAN NURSERY
SCHOOL is a non-for-profit, non-sectarian pre-school
for three-through-five year olds. The school was founded in 1965
is supported by Endicott First Presbyterian Church as part of its
mission to our community. Since 1989, the school has been accredited
National Academy of Early Childhood Programs. The accreditation
process involves comprehensive
internal self-study and external professional review to verify
compliance with the Academy's Criteria for High Quality Early
Endicott First Presbyterian Church is pleased to be able to
make its facilities available to many community groups, and
welcomes you as
part of the Nursery School. We encourage you to inquire at the
church office or speak to the director of the school or the church
the church family can help you in any way.
The philosophy of ENDICOTT FIRST PRESBYTERIAN NURSERY
SCHOOL is based on the theory that there is a sequence to
the child's growth, that development occurs in a series of steps
(with earlier steps preparing for and providing the base for later
steps) and that this sequence is always in the direction of simple
to complex and concrete to abstract.
The goals of the school
are to provide a developmentally appropriate preschool education
program for three to five year olds and to provide opportunities
for parent involvement. Through the use of open-ended materials
and a wide variety of developmentally appropriate activities
which to choose, the objectives for each child are to encourage
exploration and learning through discovery, creativity, language
development, development of social skills and self-confidence,
opportunities to practice and develop large and fine motor skills.
A further goal of the school is to identify, refer and serve
with special needs and to provide support for their
Nursery School Advisory Board
An advisory board of volunteers works closely with
the Nursery School staff in making policy decisions and maintaining
standards of the school. Board members are available to give
classroom tours during school hours for parents who are interested
in enrolling their children.
