Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Congregational Church Nursery School provides a safe and nurturing environment for encouraging and stimulating social and academic growth. Our developmental approach and low child/teacher ratio foster self-esteem and honor each child's unique qualities.
We offer an engaging and exciting curriculum to our students through a balance of structured and child-directed activities. Children participate in a wide variety of individual and group opportunities for hands-on exploration, discussion, and play. Children are exposed to daily language, creative arts, literature, music and movement, science, math, and drama -- both in the classrooms and outdoors
