GCCNS is a developmental preschool. What is developmental education? There are three developmental domains throughout life, which begin at birth: Social-Emotional, Physical, and Cognitive
Success in school BEGINS with a strong foundation that is built as children master control of their social environment as well as their inter-emotions. Children must develop a strong sense of self before cognitive gains can be made. At GCCNS, teachers work diligently with each individual child, developing a strong and positive social-emotional self.
Physical activity fuels the brain. At GCCNS, outdoor play occurs at the beginning and end of each preschool day. We have a playground for three-year-olds and a playground for four-year-olds, each specifically designed for each developmental age.
Cognitive development comes through play with developmentally appropriate toys. All toys have a specific purpose and are selected according to the individual development of each child, as Play is the Business of Childhood!
