WHAT IS O.W.L. PLAYSCHOOL ALL ABOUT?
An amazing Reggio Emilia influenced Group Family Day Care where your child will have a great time learning how to learn

"Each time one prematurely teaches a child something he could have discovered for himself, that child is kept from inventing it and, consequently, from understanding it completely." - Jean Piaget

Our Philosophy
International interest in Italy's Reggio Emilia schools exploded when Newsweek
magazine dubbed them "the best preschools in the world" in 1991. The beautiful philosophy has many educational concepts we value deeply at One World Learning and it inspires our important work with children.

We have:
- Faith in parents: To be informed and cooperative members of the team
- Faith in children: To be interested in what is worth knowing
- Faith in teachers: To solicit multiple points of view, respecting children where they are on their learning journey

We are:
+a team that is fully CPR and First Aid/AED Certified
+a school that is open all year round

We believe:
- Children are born with rights
- Children are competent
- Children use many "languages" to communicate their experience
- Children are not empty vessels to fill with facts, and dates but come to school with ideas, preferences and hypotheses to explore
- In the child as protagonist, collaborator, and communicator
- Children learn best through loving, authentic relationships
- Child development and current brain research best informs our practice In New York's Early Learning Standards and being ready for all styles of Kindergartens but with a spirit of joyfulness that promotes curiosity, problem-solving and open mindedness for a lifetime of learning

We support:
- Emergent curricula that comes from children's ideas, thoughts and observations
- Documentation as communication (pictures, quotes, journals, projects, portfolios)
-The teacher as researcher, partner, nurturer and guide
- The environment as a "third teacher", aesthetically -pleasing and connected to nature as it is our favorite place to be..
- Play and playfulness

We aim:
- For peaceful, unhurried childhoods and parent-hoods
- To be connected with the natural world, the harmony in music and dynamics found in celebrating multi-cultural-ism

At Butler Nursery School, we believe that children thrive in an age appropriate program within a safe and nurturing environment. We offer a curriculum designed to foster their growth, stimulate their curiosity, and challenge their mental and physical needs. We encourage the development of socialization skills and the building of self-esteem, while respecting each child's uniqueness as an individual. The classrooms at Butler Nursery School are bright and cheerful. We have a large, mural indoor playroom and a well-equipped outdoor playground. Play is an important aspect of child development. Through play, children explore the world around them by learning how to socialize with others, expressing feelings through language, testing muscular skills, and developing math concepts. We enrich this play through reading, music, art, cooking, and dramatic play.

We offer half day programs to children age 2-4. Programs are offered 2, 3, and 5 days a week (days offered varies based on age). We do not require that a child be potty-trained before entering school. The school year runs from mid-September to early June, and a six-week summer camp is also available.

Some daily activities include free play, music, snack time, playground time, painting, story time, dress-up, circle time, and water play. Throughout the year, Butler holds special events such as our International Dinner, Holiday Festival, Christmas Tableau, and Easter Chapel Services.

Butler is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood in Northeast Yonkers. The Butler Nursery School is a program of St. John's Episcopal Church, Tuckahoe, and is founded on the highest Christian and educational standards. We share the teachings of Jesus Christ through stories, holiday observances, grace before snacks, and child-oriented chapel services. We are a proud member of the National Association of Episcopal Schools. We welcome families of all religious faiths to join us! We are pleased to boast a diverse student body.
