Mission Statement

The mission of the Children’s Discovery Nursery School is to provide a safe, enriching, service-based Nursery School for families in the Kennebec Valley area. Located directly inside The Children's Discovery Museum, the school seeks to provide an array of exhibits and activities that promote developmental skills including social, cognitive, problem solving and peer interaction. The environment aims to create an interactive community in which hands on learning is provided through play.



Children ages 2 years 9 months to age 5 may be considered for admission. The enrollment process includes submitting all admission forms as well as completing the Payment Agreement.



Our first session will start January 4th, 2016 and run through May 27th 2016. All sessions last five months. The Nursery School day begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 11:00am, running Monday through Friday.  Each day will include indoor and outdoor play, facilitated learning opportunities, circle time and snack.



The Children’s Discovery Nursery School is a licensed school, with a student-teach ratio of at least 6:1.
