Town and Country Nursery School
Ages served: 2 through 5 years
|Town and Country Nursery School is a private, non-profit school for 3 to 5-year old children dedicated to creating warm and loving relationships with rich experiences and environments to help children learn about themselves and the world around them. The mission of Town & Country Nursery School, in partnership with parents, is to provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum for young children in a nurturing and stimulating environment. Town & Country Nursery School believes in the use of encouragement as a motivator, in allowing children to make decisions and to experience the consequences of their choices.||The Town & Country Nursery School experience strives to develop self-directed, confident and capable life-long learners.We believe that children learn everywhere, all of the time. Town & Country teachers engage children both indoors and outdoors in developing their physical, social, emotional and cognitive abilities and help promote their self-directed enthusiasm for discovery. Our school is a Demonstration Site and partner in the Outdoor Classroom Project, dedicated to increasing the quantity, quality and benefit of outdoor experiences for young children.|

Special Center | Site Features
|In developing our program at its present site since 2001, we have addressed a number of challenges: a detached playground on a lower level; providing open running space for active learners; and how to provide a range of physical challenges that encompass the developmental range of 2.5-5 year old children. With a cohesive and dedicated staff, we have worked through these challenges and are currently developing more gardening and block-building areas outdoors which impact almost all areas of child development.||We are always reminding ourselves that the Outdoor Classroom, like indoor learning space, is fluid, driven by children’s interests and always a work in progress that can be improved. We also provide parent and staff education to build awareness, understanding and consensus on the value of the Outdoor Classroom.|
