We want your feedback
The Day Nursery meets children where they are, not where we think they need to be. Teachers are intentional when developing Individual learning plans that address children’s strengths. The Day Nursery’s programs teach more than colors, shapes, and numbers. Our classrooms are school communities, rich in diversity.
