The Epiphany Lutheran Nursery School curriculum is diversified, developmentally appropriate, and designed to meet the individual needs of each child. We strive to prepare the children to be successful in an individualized classroom as well as in a structured situation. Each child is encouraged to participate in independent learning activities and to choose activities that will challenge him/her. The importance of taking turns, sharing, co-operating, listening and following directions is stressed. Respecting the ideas and opinions of others is also encouraged. Our goal at Epiphany is to create a stimulating and supportive environment which allows every child to participate based on their level of interest and to learn at their own pace.
