nursery collaborative

The trans­for­ma­tive men­tal train­ing wheels are put on here.  Here, the youngest chil­dren of Rain­tree dip their toes in water­col­ors, poke their fin­gers in clay, and dig the earth to make room for hefty gourd seeds.

 

The Nurs­ery Col­lab­o­ra­tive is a foun­da­tion for the next phase of our young stu­dents’ lives.  Sur­rounded by friends (human and dog­gie), beloved wee ones joy­fully dis­cover the rhythm of learn­ing at school.  At Rain­tree, the chil­dren of the Nurs­ery Col­lab­o­ra­tive learn that the small­est hands are capa­ble of amaz­ing things.  Days are filled with folk­tales, for­est play, bak­ing bread, singing, and mak­ing glo­ri­ous messes in the stu­dio.  This year is ded­i­cated to the awak­en­ing inter­ests of each young mind.

 

Half-day and full-time atten­dance options avail­able for chil­dren aged 2 by August 1st.
