Program goals

The goals of the Elisabeth Amen Nursery School programs are to:

  • allow each child to develop at his or her own rate
  • convey to children the challenge and excitement of learning new things
  • provide opportunities for our school community to engage in a diverse, inclusive, equitable, and accessible learning environment.
  • encourage the development of self-control, self-confidence, social interaction and critical thinking;
  • and prepare children for a successful transition to kindergarten.
