Preschool (18 Months - 4 Years Old)
The NSU University School Mailman Segal Center at the Jim and Jan Moran Family Village provides dynamically balanced education for children starting at 18 months through 4 years old in a structured and supportive environment. Experienced teachers nurture opportunities to expand students’ academic mastery and self and social intelligence. We encourage children to transform curiosity into inspired learning while teaching them essential 21st century skills of critical thinking, concept development, creativity, communication, cooperation, coordination, and confidence.
Our preschool educators provide each child with choices, challenges, and opportunities that promote feelings of competence and promote growth in all domains. Creative art, music, movement, dramatic play, problem-solving, scientific exploration, math, and literacy activities are an integral part of every child’s day.
NSU University School's Preschool programs have maintained accreditation status with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Our programs are among less than six percent of early childhood programs nationally that have achieved NAEYC accreditation, which represents the mark of quality in education. As the only university-based NAEYC accredited early learning center in Broward County, the faculty and staff of NSU University School Preschool continually work to ensure all children receive the highest quality early care and education. In addition to NAEYC accreditation, NSU University School Preschool is proud to be accredited by National Association of Laboratory Schools, the Association of Independent Schools of Florida, and the National Coalition of Campus Children’s Centers.
