Grey Nun Academy Ignites Passion for Learning in Yardley PA


Igniting a Passion for Learning, Beginning with Preschool

Young children are famous for asking why. They have a need to know, to explore, to discover, to learn about the world around them. Grey Nun Academy knows that fostering the natural inquiring spirit of our youngest students, while encouraging their curiosity and insatiable need for answers is the key to igniting a passion for learning that will help them blossom into lifelong learners.

The youngest students at Grey Nun Academy – Pre-K3, Pre-K4 and Kindergarten – embark on a journey that engages them in age-appropriate learning individualized to their varied learning styles. Small classes provide the ideal environment for children to explore their potential, share ideas and investigate the world around them.

GNA offers half-day and full-day Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 classes taught by experienced, caring teachers. The curriculum is based on a multi-sensory approach to learning, using inter-disciplinary themes and offers early introduction to music, art, movement, Spanish and technology. Making a transition from home to school is a new and exciting opportunity for young children. The Pre-K3 class at GNA is for children who are three on or before September 1st, and focuses on hands-on learning that allow them to, approach activities with imagination, and learn about friendships. Grey Nun’s Pre-K4, for students who are four on or before September 1st, builds on the activities the younger students enjoy as they also begin to develop the skills that allow them to be successful in Kindergarten, and beyond. The Pre-K4 curriculum includes Reading Readiness, Math Readiness, Oral Language Development, Motor Coordination Development, Social and Emotional Development, and Physical Development.

As a community committed to providing strong academics, a nurturing environment and unsurpassed education, Grey Nun Academy prides itself on providing a warm, friendly, fun and interesting full-day Kindergarten for students who are 5 on or before September 1st. Grey Nun strives to meet the social, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of the students in an encouraging atmosphere. The students are encouraged to wonder, to seek answers, to question and be curious while exploring their environment. This is integral to igniting their passion for learning, and is evident throughout the Kindergarten curriculum. Children are immersed in a language-rich environment, where they actively participate in a wide variety of multi-sensory language and literacy situations, and experience natural learning opportunities that develop early reading and writing skills. The children begin their journey to become lifelong readers and learners as they develop an understanding of both spoken and written language. Hands-on activities in math allow students to develop thinking, reasoning and problem-solving strategies as they learn how to use math in real life.

Understanding that every child has unique gifts, possessing special abilities, interests, talents and approaches to learning, Grey Nun offers each student the tools they need to succeed.

For more information, visit www.GNAEDU.org, call for private tour or visit the school at 1750 Quarry Road in Yardley for an upcoming Open House: October 19th 12-2 PM, October 22nd 9-11 AM or November 5th 9-11 AM.

Breast Feeding Awareness


St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children Raises Awareness of Breastfeeding

PHILADELPHIA, July 28, 2014 — To celebrate National Breastfeeding Awareness Month in August, St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children will host a breastfeeding awareness week August 4-8, 2014 at the hospital, located at 160 East Erie Avenue in Philadelphia, PA.

The event will help raise awareness for the importance of breastfeeding and provide helpful information to hospital employees and the community. Throughout the week, tables with informative materials on breastfeeding, staffed by St. Christopher’s employees, will be set up in three locations: the Lower Atrium at the main hospital, in Ambulatory Pediatrics on the first floor of the main hospital, and in the lobby of the Nelson Pavilion, located across the parking lot from the hospital.
St. Christopher’s currently has a hospital-based Breastfeeding Committee comprised of nurses, and Certified Breastfeeding Counselors (CBC). A CBC is a person who receives training and competency verification in breastfeeding, knowledge of milk production, prevention and management of breastfeeding complications, feeding difficulties and handling and storage of breast milk. The group assists mothers who are learning to breastfeed, as well as provides support and education to breastfeeding or pumping mothers and staff.

“Currently, our group sees about 170 newborns per month,” says Deborah Sandrock, MD, International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), physician at St. Christopher’s. We assist moms in obtaining personal items to help with breastfeeding and work closely with home care visiting nurses who are involved with our patients. We also have a MILK warmline that provides breastfeeding support to moms if they have questions or concerns between appointments.”

The purpose of the Breastfeeding Committee at St. Christopher’s is to increase the rates of breastfeeding at St. Christopher’s and to raise awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding and breastmilk. Lactation Consultant services are a part of outpatient newborn visits for breastfeeding families, as well.

“Breastfeeding may help to lower the risk of SIDS in babies, as well as reduce the risk of Type 2 Diabetes, childhood leukemia, ear infections, obesity and asthma,” says Dr. Sandrock. “Breast milk is also easier to digest than formula and is rich in nutrients and antibodies.”

Dr. Sandrock adds that breastfeeding may also lower the risk of Type 2 Diabetes, breast cancer, ovarian cancer and postpartum depression in women.

St. Christopher’s Hospital
Since 1875, St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children has been providing exceptional patient care and advancing new pediatric treatments through research and innovation. Through affiliations with Drexel University College of Medicine and Temple University School of Medicine, St. Christopher’s is a teaching hospital helping to train the next generation of professionals in pediatric medicine.

A 189-bed hospital, St. Christopher’s is committed to delivering high quality family-and patient-centered care to children throughout the greater Delaware Valley. Its highly acclaimed programs include a Level I Pediatric Trauma Center, Level IV NICU, a Heart Center and Oncology unit. Hospital services also include the only dedicated pediatric burn center in the area. Thanks to our nursing excellence, St. Christopher’s achieved Magnet status in 2009. Numerous St. Christopher’s physicians are frequently recognized in regional publications as “Top Docs” in their fields of expertise. In 2012, St. Christopher’s announced a $110 million expansion to include two new structures. The Critical Care Tower, which features advanced technology while incorporating families’ needs, will house 50 critical care and 60 Level IIIC NICU beds. The Center for the Urban Child will provide children with comprehensive services to help break the cycles of food insecurity, violence and childhood illness.
