St. Thomas Nursery School was founded in 1951 and is one of the oldest and premier nursery schools in the region. At St. Thomas Nursery School, we educate children in the Episcopal tradition, nurturing each child’s social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual development. We invest in an award- winning curriculum called Handwriting Without Tears (HWT). This curriculum helps children develop school readiness skills and succeed in handwriting.
We encourage our students to ask questions, to respond to others, to be responsible, to problem-solve, to create, to enjoy books and to actively play. Our specials include cooking, art, chapel, and music. These experiences help children to conceptualize their world and lay the foundation for sound learning. We provide a loving, supportive, safe and educational environment for preschool children from the ages of 2 yrs old -5 yrs old. We serve children in both the congregation and in the community, and are fortunate to be closely aligned to a large, welcoming Episcopal Church with dynamic ministries for children, youth and young families.
