General School Mission

It is our hope that the school will be an enriching experience for your child and that it will supplement the good foundations already laid for them in the pre-nursery school years. Our goal for each child is that they learn to trust and get along with other children and adults and they develop confidence in their abilities and self worth. As a member if a cooperative nursery school, their parent and teachers will be working together toward this goal.
