The daily program is a balanced combination of free play and guided activities.  Opportunities exist for self-expression through play, art, language, science activities, and music. Field trips and special visitors are part of the broadening program for four-year-olds. We offer exposure to numbers, letters, shapes, and colors through toys, games, and finger plays, yet we give each child the freedom to absorb information at his or her own rate. Most importantly, we strive to develop the social and self-help skills needed for a successful kindergarten experience.

Our 4 year old classes consist of 2 teachers and a maximum of 12 children per class.  3 year old classes consist of 2 teachers and 1 teacher's aide with a maximum of 12 children. The Pre-K class consists of 2 teachers and a maximum of 13 children. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to sign up to help in the classroom and on field trips.

The 4th day of our 4 day 4s is called The Explorer’s Club. It is a science enrichment program with a curriculum that is independent from the regular 4s curriculum. This exciting program allows children to explore and discover the wonders of our natural world. The Explorer’s Club children enjoy frequent hikes on the trails in Belden Forest located right behind our school. They have the opportunity to learn about and meet many critters, insects and spiders through the year both at our school and at the Simsbury Public Library.

Hopmeadow Nursery School is a tree nut and peanut-free school. Parents are asked to send nut-free snacks and lunches to school with their children (please read ingredients on packaged foods carefully). Please notify the director and your child’s teacher if your child has food allergies.
