Did you know that Orchard Ridge Nursery School offers an afternoon program for any child enrolled in an entirely virtual K-2 school option? Our program is specially designed for the needs of your child during this challenging time. With our small class size and child-friendly environment, it might be the perfect way for you to complement your child’s online learning environment.

What Does Your Program Offer?

The short answer, it’s based on each child’s needs, so it varies from day-to-day. Our classroom is virtual session friendly. If your child needs to join their class virtually during the afternoon, we can help them get connected and attend class. Additionally, each day always includes a quiet learning period, allowing us to offer one-on-one help with school work.

But more importantly, we can provide your child with the opportunity to socialize in a safe and controlled environment.

Program Details

  • Mon – Thurs @ 12:30 – 3:30 PM
  • Led by 2 of our incredible 4K teachers*
  • All staff and children are required to wear masks while they are at school

We knew from the start that the constant changes with schooling this year would be hard on our kindergartner, but we wanted her to still have a safe place to be a little kid! ORNS has always been a second home to our girl, and we were so excited for her to have the chance to go back!

We’ve had the best of both worlds – a consistent environment with virtual public school and afternoons filled with fun and play at ORNS! Our daughter has her confidence back, and I know that everyone at ORNS is doing everything to keep her safe and healthy! She is glowing at the end of the day, and we are so happy to be back “home”!
