The First Step program runs Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., with a student to teacher ratio of 4:1. Each child is encouraged to explore the environment at his or her own pace. The emphasis is on social, emotional and language development as children begin to develop a sense of their place in the world around them. Within the structure of a safe, consistent routine there is room for individual growth and experimentation. Activities include free play, puzzles, manipulatives, arts and crafts, kindermusic, computer and outdoor play. To be eligible for admission to the First Step program, a child must celebrate his second birthday prior to October 31. Children do not need to be toilet-trained for this program.

Round Hill Nursery School is an academic pre-school with a developmentally appropriate curriculum. The goals and activities in each classroom are designed to foster the development of expressive and receptive language, pre-reading, pre-wriitng and pre-math skills, as well as fine motor and gross motor skills. Our programs utilize a hands-on approach to learning through risk-taking and investigating in a safe and supportive environment. Individual differences, readiness levels and learning styles among our students are recognized and appreciated by our experienced faculty. Our curriculum is enriched through fields trips to places such as the New Canaan Nature Center for apple cider pressing and maple sugaring, the Bruce Museum at Thanksgiving time for a unit on Woodland Indian Family Life, trips to the Audubon and Fairchild Gardens, and SUNY Purchase to be introduced to the excitement of live theater. Of utmost importance, however, is the understanding that children learn best through play. And there is ample time for play at RHNS.
