At The Nest Schools, each day holds a promise to our families. We will create a culture of kindness, build the foundations for wellness for life, make learning fun, and continually take our best and make it better. Everything we do is intended to foster a love of learning and set our children up for a lifetime of happiness and success.

Choosing a preschool for your child is a very personal and important decision – you need to choose the one that feels just right. There are many things you’ll need to consider:

  • You want a clean, safe preschool that gives your child the feeling of home.
  • You want a well-trained and courteous staff that will nurture your child and inspire a love of learning.
  • You want a curriculum that gives your child the best educational start possible.
  • And you want communication that will allow you to never miss a moment of your child’s development when you can’t be there.

We’re happy to tell you, ALL of this can be found at The Nest Schools.
