OMNS offers children in our 3's & 4's class, a unique opportunity to learn under an individually developed curriculum, which was approved by the Maryland State Department of Education as meeting the State's highest standards set forth by child development experts. All areas of learning are addressed each day, including:
Language and Literacy
Cognitive (mathematical and scientific thinking)
Social and Emotional Skills
Creative Arts (music, art, drama)
Fine and gross motor skills
Every day includes child directed playtime during which
children explore interest centers, such as art, dramatic
play, books, blocks and building, math and science.
Children become involved in playful sensory exploration
to construct their own knowledge at their own pace.
Child directed playtime is balanced with teacher directed
small and large group activities to help children master
developmental goals and objectives. The curriculum incorporates guest visitors from the community and school families to share their talents, cultural traditions, and areas of expertise.
At OMNS we strive to prepare children for the ever-increasing
expectations of kindergarten by fostering their natural curiosity and building a true love of learning.
