More about this provider

At Paty's Nest we believe that imagination has no limits. We believe in a lot of outdoor play, learning new things, playing with friends, and loving one another. At Paty's Nest we encourage the individual growth and development of each child. We take a holistic approach toward well-being and seek a balance of the body and mind. We provide an atmosphere of trust, safety, and respect in which the experience of joyful learning, friendship building, and growth is bound to happen.

At Paty's Nest we base our program on the Reggio Emilia and Montessori models, which are child-centered educational approaches that view children as infinitely capable, creative, and intelligent. In these educational models, children are taught and encouraged to be responsible, respectful, helpful, and kind to themselves, others, and their physical environment both indoors and outdoors. We believe that children should be given the freedom to explore and learn at their own pace, and that focusing primarily on teaching social-emotional skills, independence, and self-reliance gives them the tools they need to be successful in an academic setting. Parents are the most important teachers in the lives of their children and are a very important part of what makes our day care community so special. We are honored to partner with you in the growth and development of your child. Communication and involvement are extremely important to ensure a successful experience for your child. We are able to provide the best care and learning environment for your child if rules, routines, and expectations are kept as consistent as possible both at home and while they are in our care.
