Bay Manor Nursery School is located within the Grace Lutheran Church on Mastic Road. They preschool with Christian values and offer a great, nuturing environment for little ones to learn and socialize.
The children are taught about Christian holidays and celebrate them with events such as the live Nativity that the children act in at Christmas. There is also pumpkin picking in the school field, signing for the elders at a local nursing home and many other activities that encourage your children to learn, grow and be with others. The children also have music lessons, learn the Lord's Prayer, work on computer, do arts and crafts and learn their numbers, letters, shapes and colors through stimulating dittos and activities.
The teachers, Miss Maria (a former kindergarten teacher), Miss Rosie and Miss Nina are highly competent and have been with Bay Manor for many years. The administrator, Miss Debbie, is outstanding on every level and easy to talk to about school events and issues.
My children loved Bay Manor and have fond memories of their time there. Everyone in the neighborhood I have spoken to that has gone to Bay Manor (including adults who went there over twenty years ago) really loved the experience and learned from it. I highly recommend this preschool.
PROS: Great learning and socialization, outstanding staff
CONS: Never enough enrollment for a five day program! (It's three days)
