Background Information

Located in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, Nursery Rhymes Preschool and Kindergarten provides children with a warm, loving, and caring atmosphere in which devoted teachers foster an appetite for learning in their pupils. This state licensed childcare facility plays a vital role in the intellectual, physical, mental, and emotional development of its students, who range between the ages of 2 through kindergarten. For many children, this may be their first experience in the classroom before entering the primary grades.

Since its establishment in 1954, Nursery Rhymes has and continues to provide children with the best preschool experience they can have and they grow and develop to reach their fullest potential.

Summary of Internship

Every Thursday at Nursery Rhymes Preschool and Kindergarten in Saddle Brook is a new adventure; there is no telling what the brilliant and rapidly developing minds of the Pre-K 3 class will surprise me with next. I spend my time assisting my mentors by aiding the children in their daily lessons, art projects, and monitoring playtime. Due to the fact that Nursery Rhymes curriculum changes every week, there is always something exciting happening when I arrive. The atmosphere is extremely welcoming and the staff immediately treats you as if you are one of their own; if there is ever an issue, I have never hesitated to consult any of my coworkers for a solution. I feel as if this experience has helped me to develop a stronger sense of leadership and problem solving while taking on a tremendous amount of responsibility. Working with these children has opened the door to my interest in early childhood development. As I continue working alongside my Nursery Rhymes family, I know that this extremely hands on experience will be one that I could never easily forget. I am immensely appreciative to have been granted this opportunity to work with such amazing staff and students.
