General School Mission

"Colonial Nursery School is committed to bringing children and families together under the guidance of trained, experienced, and creative teachers and staff. We strive to promote self-confidence in our children and a sense of wonder about their world.
By introducing and developing concepts and skills through language arts, science, mathematics, and social studies, as well as art, drama, music, and free play, we provide a safe atmosphere in which the child can improve communications skills and define social boundaries.
The following comprise the philosophical foundation of Colonial Nursery School. We believe in:
Creativity as an essential aspect of development;
Encouraging each child to observe and experience diversity among people and the natural world;
Tolerance and compassion for others;
Each individual's unique abilities enabling one to learn about oneself;
The need to work both cooperatively and independently as the situation requires;
Social, emotional, and academic needs being met through freedom as a means of grown, individual expression, and imagination
Creativity is the key to our philosophy at all stages of growth and development.
Our philosophy is to promote individuality, creativity, and diversity through experience-based learning.
The arts are used in instruction and are woven into all aspects of the day.
