Children’s Center

These programs will help prepare your child for Kindergarten as they learn to interact with their peers. All program supplies are included in the monthly payment. Children will receive a daily snack. Parents are asked to bring snacks twice per year. Request a parent handbook at Nash for more information. Auto Payment is available for this program. Inquire at Nash for more information.

A new addition to the Children’s Center is the Hatch Interactive Whiteboard. The board is already being utilized for daily attendance, independent play and daily activities.  The TeachSmart® Learning System contains over 1,100 individualized preschool activities that reflect the latest scientific research for literacy and mathematics concept acquisition in young children. The system identifies the skills students have mastered and where they need more help.

The technology is installed at child-appropriate heights, allowing easy access for young learners. The construction of the Hatch Display and Interactive Whiteboard is durable and built to last. The children have been excited with the implementation of this technology.
