The nursery school students at the La Jolla United Methodist Church started a garden and farmers market after hearing the story of Beatrice’s Goat. The children help plant, tend and harvest the garden and send all market proceeds to Heifer International.
The Nursery School of La Jolla United Methodist Church is sponsored by and reflects the Church’s mission to serve families, especially during early childhood when the basic patterns for coping with life are formed. Our program considers the developmental needs of children in physical, emotional, social, mental and spiritual growth as an interrelated and continuous process.
Our goals for children include providing experiences of acceptance, growth and trust, awareness and knowledge of the world in which they live, coping with and making decisions about their relationships to that world, living successfully and creatively with both their potentials and limitations, and learning independence, sharing and tolerance. The school offers a developmental play-based program, providing experiences and materials for children to co-construct knowledge about themselves, others and the world in which we live. Inspired by the work of educators in Reggio Emilia, Italy, we encourage children to express their ideas and understandings through art, dramatic play, stories, music and block building. The teachers document the children’s learning in order to help the children and each other discover…. “What’s next?” Extending projects over time and watching curriculum emerge from the interests of the children, teachers and parents makes learning during this period of a child’s life real and relevant, fun and exciting ! Above all, we are dedicated to the nurturing, growth and happiness of children.
We are licensed by the California State Department of Social Services. Our staff meets the professional requirements set by this department.
