School uniforms are optional at Community Day Nursery. You will occasionally see a child in a uniform because some parents prefer the convenience of a uniform. Most of our children wear casual clothes, but at this young age the children don’t notice clothing–they are more focused on the learning activities than on what their friends are wearing.
Children and their families come together to share food, stories and song with the Community Day teachers and staff, and the Board of Trustees of the school.
We have a “Best of” contest and families are awarded prizes for the best entrees, best side dishes, and best desserts. Entertainment is provided for the children as we prepare for dinner.
The Family Dinner helps build relationships between school and home, fostering camaraderie between the families and the teachers. As we all know, strong home school connections are important for academic success!
Each fall we visit the Farms View Road Stand in Wayne, NJ.
The children have a pumpkin cookie and juice snack before boarding the wagon for a hayride out into the pumpkin patch. The children each pick a pumpkin to bring home and then visit the farm animals before heading back to school.
