Nursery, Pre-K, and Kindergarten Classes

Peach Blossom Nursery

 

Monday-Friday, Mornings, 8:15 to 12:15

In their first independent steps of schooling away from home, little ones (3 to 4 years old) learn to play and work with others within the beautiful setting of our children’s garden. Experienced teachers guide the children through rhythms and activities designed to help build a sense of well-being and wonder. Our morning curriculum includes daily nature walks, animal care, seasonal circles of song, verse and story, and creative play.
