The Giving Nest Preschool provides an opportunity for children to feel safe and secure in a loving environment away from home.
Our dedicated staff stimulates and nourishes the total child, meeting emotional, social, intellectual and physical needs.
Like the young bird in the nest that is nurtured and loved by the mother bird, our staff develops each child's self-worth and self-importance.
We want children to realize that each of us, young and old, have special gifts to share and give to our family, friends and the community.
As important as it is for our children to receive all the good things we have to offer, it is also important for them to learn to give.
