Our Mission of Early Childhood Education
Columbia Greenhouse Nursery School is committed to early childhood education, fostering the healthy emotional, social, intellectual and physical development of young children.
We believe young children learn best through engagement with stimulating materials, interaction with peers in small groups, and relationships with responsive and loving adults. We have carefully planned a warm and nurturing play-centered environment that encourages creativity, exploration, problem solving, independence, positive peer interactions and a sense of community.
In partnership with parents and families we cultivate each child’s uniqueness and strengthen self esteem through the development of skills, interests, and socialization. We understand the creation of active, life-long learners to be rooted in a child’s positive sense of self, as well as their continuing and joyful curiosity.
