Field Trips are an important part of a child’s educational experience. Throughout the year, The Village Nursery School students partake in various field trips, many of which are only a short walk from our school. These include:
Lawrence Farms (Newburgh) to learn about how apples grow, pumpkin picking, hay maze and fun in the miniature village.
Storm King Firehouse to learn about fire safety
A local dentist to learn about dental hygiene
Cornwall Public Library to learn about the library and all the special programs offered to the community
Cornwall-on-Hudson Elementary School (to preview the “big” school)
The Museum of the Hudson Highlands to learn about different animals
Visit from a local police officer and Cornwall Volunteer Ambulance Corps member to introduce students to our friendly neighborhood helpers
While the four-year-olds get to experience the going out on field trips, we bring many of these experiences to the school for our three-year-olds.
