Our School

WHAT'S OUR GOAL
We are aimed at preparing children to enter kindergarten with the necessary skills that will help them to become confident learners. Each program at our school is geared towards helping your child master age appropriate skills that will help them to become confident learners as they progress through school. We offer four programs to help prepare your child so they have the best start to their school years. We currently serve the Mendon, Honeoye Falls, Victor, Pittsford and Bloomfield areas.
There are many preschools in Mendon NY, but our preschool nurtures as well as prepares children at each level of the learning process.  Our school operates using two important principles. The first is to create a loving and caring atmosphere where children are free to explore and learn in a place where they can feel comfortable doing so. The second is to promote skills at each age which build upon the foundation for what children need upon entering kindergarten. These two principles are what enable children to build confidence in who they are as individuals, and this helps set the stage for learning both now and in the future. Our teachers are certified with masters degrees in education and we have a safe, fenced in playground for outdoor play.

YOUR CHILD WILL EXPERIENCE THE BEST START TO THEIR SCHOOL YEARS

The Two’s Program at MCNS is designed to help little ones foster social skills, communication skills, fine motor skills, and gross motor skills in an age-appropriate, playful, and safe environment. Many materials and sensory experiences are provided and children are offered the opportunity to choose manipulatives that are appealing to them. When youngsters feel comfortable with the activity, the teachers can help them to expand upon basic skills needed both inside and out of the classroom. These skills include asking for help, talking about the object with which they are playing, taking turns, and learning how to move their bodies among their environment.

The Three year old class at MCNS is a fun environment where all aspects of the learning process are introduced. Children develop attitudes about their own learning early on so in the 3’s, it is important to foster their curiosity, their persistence and attentiveness. To help spark each child’s individual curiosity, the teachers provide opportunities for the children to engage in hands-on experiments, art projects, music, math and reading readiness. Lastly, teachers help guide the children through their social development by encouraging sharing, facilitating cooperative play and fostering friendships.

In PreK at MCNS children are seen as individual learners who can participate in a variety of hands-on activities. Play materials are designed for specific purposes. We work in the areas of independence, responsibility, preparation, confidence and self-esteem, small motor skills, large motor skills, listening, following directions, academics, and FUN! The goal is for all children to enjoy all of the above in a loving, nurturing and playful environment.

Transitional kindergarten at MCNS is a program that gives our youngest kinders time to grow. Children who come to this program are given the gift of another year. They are usually children who have late birthdays falling in the summer months to late December. In TK children are given the opportunity to practice skills through a structured class with academics learned in fun and meaningful ways! The important thing in TK is that the children show progress, not that they master every skill. The curriculum is based on kindergarten standards, but it is modified to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of younger children. Because they have this extra year, children are given a chance to work out problems like impulsivity, sharing class materials with other students, paying attention and controlling their emotions so that when they enter kindergarten they are confident and ready learners who want to achieve success.
