Our Philosophy

Children learn authentically through rich play-based experiences.  With the support of our teacher and other parents you will help the children learn and grow in a supportive, caring environment.


Our School

We are housed in a historic one-room schoolhouse that has been used exclusively for education purposes since its construction. Clifton Park Nursery School has been a cooperative school since 1960, and is one of the last in the area.  Our classroom environment is carefully designed to stimulate creative and self-directed play for young children.

Our Mission

Our mission, beyond early childhood education, is to create a school community made up of the teacher, parents, children, and alumni.  This community is a wonderful source of friendships, parent education, local opportunities, and much needed support we all need as caregivers of young children!
