Children learn more during their early years than at any other time in their lives and it is our privilege to share the wonder of this magical early learning journey with your children and with you, their nursery school teacher educators. I hope that you enjoy looking at our website. We are very proud of our school and would love to show you around and tell you more. Please call in or contact us to arrange a visit.
This week in nursery wc 26. Winter information re any school closure please see school closure info. The video below provides a taste of daily life here in school. School website created using School Jotter, a Webanywhere product. We’ve been fostering young children’s independence, curiosity and love of learning in Rochester for more than 50 years!
Our certified, highly trained staff has developed a unique curriculum that instills the value of life-long learning with children as young as two years old. Parents are members of a non-profit, non-sectarian corporation that administers the school through an appointed board of trustees. That may sound scary, but it’s great! Parents have the opportunity to guide their child’s first school experience as they share in decision making and committee service. For information on the school structure, see the abbreviated description of committees document. The school by-laws provide detailed information about parental responsibilities, financial commitments, and refund policies. The Winton Road Nursery School admits students of both sexes and of any race, creed, color and national or ethnic background.
A small number of scholarships are awarded based on financial need. Molly Shafer Molly Shafer, who has a B. Psychology and Elementary Education from St. John Fischer College, began teaching at WRNS in 2000, but she was connected to the school much earlier than that.
All four of her children attended WRNS. She was drawn to teach at WRNS because of its warm and nurturing environment and because she loves working at a school in which the parent involvement is so high. She is now a lead teacher for the five-day program and enjoys working with the four year olds. Like many of the other staff members, one of her children attended WRNS in the late nineties. While searching for a preschool, she remembers her son insisting he go to Winton Road because he loved the playground. She has also taken post-graduate classes in early childhood education from MCC and University of Rochester. Enthusiasm and love of learning is what drew Patty to working with young children.
