Children’s Farm Nursery is a program for children in the age group of 2-6. They believe in the uniqueness of each child’s pattern of development and that each child is encouraged and enhanced through a program that permits a variety of fun learning activities and experiences. This even includes pony rides throughout the summer. They also believe that a child’s mind, soul and body thrive in an atmosphere of love, and that they can foster an atmosphere only by loving and respecting each other. They have found that small children have a great capacity and willingness to learn and that they learn best when they are:
Free from tension and fatigue
Free to question and discover
Provided an environment stimulation on their individual level of development
Provided close adult guidance to help them interpret and come to terms with their experiences, problems and emotions
Integrated in a program with other children of varying ages

The children and staff of the center work together solving problems and sharing pleasures, and promoting mutual respect and awareness of one another’s needs. We have found the following resources helpful:
The Montessorri collection with worksheets, homemade materials and resources for parents and teachers.
The National Parks – we believe each child should visit, and take in the wonder of nature.
