The timely donation of two heavy-weight wagons and three heavy-weight tricycles to Miss Nadine’s Pre-school from Rotary Central was most welcomed by the youngsters of the school.
The aftermath of Hurricane Ivan left Miss Nadine’s with little or no outside toys, which aid in the physical development of its children. While debris left by the hurricane was cleared away, replacement of badly needed playground equipment has been slow in coming.
Miss Nadine’s Pre-school has been around for the past 14 years providing the community with excellent child care, states a press release. The aim of its programme is to take a more developmental approach to teaching children.
Through pre-school education courses, we know that children do most of their learning through play, and therefore we are very hands on in our programme. The children learn and play in learning centres. They have lesson time, devotions, arts and crafts and play ground time every day.
All of these things combined help children develop the motor, and basic skills they will need for their future education. The aim of Miss Nadine’s is to make the children’s first school experience an enjoyable one.
The National Council of Voluntary Organisations operates the school, a non- profit organisation. Among other projects of NCVO are The Nadine Andreas Residential Foster Home, Jack and Jill Nursery, Caring Cousins Welfare Fund and the John Gray Memorial Scholarship Fund.
