Learn about Blue Rock School’s Unique Kindergarten Program Blue Rock School, an independent K-8 school in West Nyack, is hosting a free event for 4-and 5-year-olds and their parents from 10 a.m. to noon, on October 20. While the children play, their parents can learn about Blue Rock’s creative learning environment and tour the school’s wooded campus. “Children can enjoy a fall harvest-themed morning with Blue Rock’s kindergarten staff that includes storytelling, crafts, homemade snacks and outdoor play on our beautiful four-and-a-half acre campus,” says Admissions Director Beverly Stycos. “Magical play spaces abound here, as the grounds have numerous creative play structures as well as a sandbox among the flower gardens.” Blue Rock School features small class settings and an interdisciplinary curriculum that emphasizes the arts, nature and play, and encourages creativity, collaboration, depth of learning, critical thinking and confident self-expression. “As the Lower Hudson Valley’s only progressive, independent day school, Blue Rock is committed to fostering a non-elitist community of students from diverse ethnic, religious and economic backgrounds,” Stycos says. “We offer a unique discovery-based, test-and-grade-free learning environment that encourages and nurtures children’s natural curiosity and innate love of learning. It is a truly dynamic and joyful learning community.” The event will be held rain or shine. Space is limited.
