Metropolitan Nursery School was founded in 1966 by the church as an outreach to the community. While the Nursery School has grown and changed since then, it has remained true to the philosophy that each child is unique and learns in his or her own way. When I joined the community this year, Metropolitan was described to me as a magical place for young children during these important and busy years of development. It is a welcoming community where students and families are the focus of the experienced and dedicated staff.
Over the years Metropolitan has stayed true to what works in early childhood education by creating optimum learning environments based on what we know is best practices for the ages we serve. Our nurturing and experienced staff provide an environment rich with materials, language, and opportunities needed for play and exploration and meet each child at their unique developmental stage of growth. We understand nursery school may be the child's first group education experience and we support their social and emotional growth by encouraging them to take risks, solve problems and gain trust and confidence in their own abilities while learning to recognize the abilities and talents of those around them. We also support the growth and education of young children by sharing our educational knowledge and offering compassion and understanding to our families. We recognize parents and caregivers as important partners and participants in their child’s growth and development a strive to create opportunities for everyone to feel connected and supported. We believe every person is worthy of love and understanding and capable of infinite growth.
I invite you to visit our school during one of our open houses to witness the joy that is nursery school education and experience the magic that is Metropolitan.
