HAMIOTA NURSERY SCHOOL
The Nursery school is located in the Village United Early Learning Centre on 4th Street. The teacher encourages children to attend this specialized learning centre where children learn to socialize and interact with other children of the same age. This education stresses formal learning with fun. The format includes art and crafts, playtime (sharing), music, reading, listening, puzzles, play dough, hygiene, and table manners during snack time. In addition to active activities (outdoors, weather permitting) the children enjoy “Circle Time”, where they participate in a number of low organized games. Bulletins and a news board keep parents informed of development progress. Parents are welcome to visit anytime.
Children can attend the school once or twice a week for a 1/2 day, in the morning.
