Wimpfheimer Nursery School

  • The basic components of quality early childhood education are the cornerstones of Wimpfheimer Nursery School: a child-centered environment; a developmentally appropriate curriculum; low adult/child ratios; and an educated, experienced teaching staff.
  • Architecturally designed as a nursery school, the physical structure and furnishings support child-centered exploration and learning.
  • Self-help skills and independence are fostered as children work/play in an environment built to fit their needs.
  • Success in their environment in turn promotes positive self-esteem. The Wimpfheimer Nursery School is also part of the wider Vassar community.
