Barrow Street Nursery School

Curriculum | School at a Glance | Mission and Philosophy Sample Class Day | Service Learning | Staff and Teachers

Barrow Street Nursery School believes the early years are the most productive of a child's life and we challenge our students to excel in ways that fit their own unique development. 

Creativity and artistic expression are developed through individual exploration and group collaboration and provides children with the building blocks of knowledge, thinking and reasoning. 

Barrow Street believes a solid educational foundation includes learning about character and the community. We reinforce the belief 
that education promotes responsibility and develops character. Beginning with our youngest students, we emphasize respect, responsibility, honesty, and kindness and actively engage our community in school-wide service learning projects that ensure harmonious continuity between children's home and school life.
