7Village Nursery School  offers two types of enrichment programs which supplement and enhance our students’ experience:

In-School Enrichment Sessions

During the school year VNS brings in specialists and artists to present to the children as part of the curricula, some of which are sponsored by the VNS Parent Association. The programs include musical, cultural, environment, and literary programs. They are made available during normal class times, as a special school activity or as an after class program. Past programs have included professional puppet shows, science and animal programs, apple cider pressing, storytelling, and music performances.

After School Enrichment Programs

Our popular  Enrichment Programs are offered throughout the school year in six week sessions and allow children to explore, investigate and simply enjoy specialized topics. Learning a yoga pose, sampling foods and the culture of Egypt, setting up a garden, cooking recipes from popular age appropriate books are just a sample of the changing offerings the VNS faculty has developed and honed over the years. Many of our classes take advantage of the expansive grounds at Village Nursery School and the nature trails that surround our building. Past offerings have included:

  • Yoga
  • Science & Nature
  • Cooks and Books
  • Garden Club
  • Sports and Games
