Five Mile River Nursery School

Five Mile River Nursery School focuses on the development of the whole child: intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual, and physical.  Our goal is to create a framework of materials and an atmosphere of love and acceptance in a partnership between families and staff that will set the stage for discovery and growth.  We believe that when we allow a child to make appropriate choices, we are building a firm foundation for later learning and preparing the child for the ever-changing world.

We follow an evolving mix of Bank Street Method, Creative Curriculum and the Emergent Curriculum.  By looking at the children individually, we hope to encourage autonomy and support them in all of their areas of development thereby achieving a positive self-image for each child.
