The Giving Nest Preschool

  • 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.
