Too often today young children are pushed to learn more, younger and faster than ever before. It's a blessing to find a preschool that recognizes 3 and 4 year olds still need to be treated like they are 3 and 4 years old. Westminster Nursery School Children learn amazing things - the basics, plus addition, subtraction, pre-algebraic concepts, biology, astronomy, chemistry, etc - without drills and worksheets. They learn through hands-on interaction, stories, songs and a creativity. Some looking in see ""play"" and fail to see the real learning process going on. Children counting peers sitting in circle time are learning numbers - and they are also learning to add and subtract - ""we have 15 friends in our class but only 12 are here today. How many friends are missing?"" they may see a cardboard rocket ship in the corner and assume it's just ""play"" but they fail to see their child learning about outer space, NASA and scientific processes. Maybe they see a girl stringing beads...and yet what is there is a child learning patterning (pre-algebraic skill) and honing fine motor skills required for writing. They see kids voting on favorite foods - but don't see children coming to understand our political process in terms they can relate to. \r
\r
WNS's staff love what they do and it shows. They love their students - and it shows. More importantly, the kids at Westminster love their teachers. The mutual respect and adoration fosters an amazing and safe learning environment - secure, happy students mean students ready to absorb all you can offer them.\r
\r
My kids have thrived at WNS and more importantly, they've developed a real passion for learning that's lasted into primary school years. I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

I attended Westminster when I was 4. I actually still visit my old teachers from time to time. My mother actually pulled me out of another nursery school to put me in this one, and definitely felt that I was having a better experience here than in the old place.

My daughter went to Westminster when she was four. The teachers, and staff were excellent. We loved the classroom setting. We are great full for the teachers and staff, who picked up on our daughter's learning disability. I feel that some schools would try to keep a child in their program just for the money. Westminster is a wonderful school, I would recommend them to every parent.

My son started this nursery school when he was four. I was worried that he would have a separation problem but the teachers made him feel so loved and comfortable that he did not cry one tear. The teachers are wonderful and love each child as if they were their own. Every child gets a hug from each of the two teachers as they walk out the door to go home. Each class has a class pet and the children do lots of fun and educational activities. Best nursery school hands down.
