Over 30 years serving the Reisterstown Community!

Our nursery school has been part of the Reisterstown community since 1984. We have sent forth many generations of students ready for school and life -long learning.  Our goal is to have our children go forth enthusiastically with confidence in their own abilities and ideas with a firm foundation of skills and a thirst for more knowledge.

Who We Are

We focus on learning through play, socialization, and movement.  We encourage children to explore their world through all of their senses. We encourage independence, respect, and good moral character.

Our classes run from September through May.
