About the Provider

Description: St. Mary's nursery offers a no-pressure environment in which children have an opportunity to be the agents of their own learning. This philosophy of respect for children and their ability to make choices builds self-esteem and creates a foundation of learning that is purely positive; therefore, the child's relationship to school will be positive as the child moves on to grade school. Children will always choose to learn when they are ready for the challenge. Forcing a child into an activity that may be beyond their developmental abilities only teaches a child that the activity is difficult and should generally be avoided. Consequently, we employ game playing teaching techniques, freedom, validation and abundant support and affection to generate enthusiasm for learning. Saint Mary's Nursery School graduates are invariably ready for kindergarten.
