General School Mission

Little Nest Preschool is a cozy, nurturing half-day program for preschoolers aged 2½ - 6. We have a Montessori-inspired environment. Our objective is to provide a balanced curriculum where children learn by doing and exploring and where the environment and experiences are in tune with the characteristics of the child.
