Innovative and enriching Preschool, Kindergarten and Before & After School programs for children 3-12 years old

Nature's Nursery has provided early education and school-age programs to community families for over 30 years. A sound curriculum, dynamic nature settings and caring staff create an engaging educational experience to support the most important years in a child’s growth and development.

The goal of Nature’s Nursery programs is to develop confident, motivated lifelong learners with strong academic skills, inquisitive attitudes, keen social intelligence, and critical, creative thinking abilities. A quality learning process encourages children in hands-on discovery and interaction with nature and animals at our farm and unique outdoor spaces. We celebrate each child’s strengths, respecting their individual needs and allowing them to explore in an accepting, nurturing environment.

Our Kindergarten meets New York State academic curriculum standards along with creative and enriching activities such as arts & crafts, community service projects and nature study. Before & After School programs feature age-appropriate recreation activities, as well as homework help and group projects to engage young minds.
