Leila Day Nurseries, Inc.

  • At Leila Day we are committed to promoting children's social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth within a warm, loving environment.
  • We help children learn about their feelings and those of others, and we work to create a community in which children can learn to get along with others.
  • We want children to love "school" and to be active learners with good problem solving skills.
  • We work to foster in children a positive self-image as well as a sense of competence and mastery in which the roots of confidence are anchored.
  • Above all, we try to look at each child's uniqueness, encouraging individual expression and development.
  • We offer a wide range of experiences to enhance self-expression, social awareness, and cognitive exploration.
  • The materials we use to achieve these goals include a range of art media, sensory materials such as sand and water, kitchen equipment for cooking, and a workbench and tools for carpentry.
  • There are blocks and props for building and dramatic play.
  • Music and movement are integrated into the daily routine of kindergarten along with books, stories, poems, and creative writing in many forms.
  • There are also manipulative math materials, games and puzzles, and a great many tools and pieces of equipment to assist in scientific explorations.
