Shelburne Nursery School
Ages: 3 - 5
The school believes strongly in the development of the total child. The child's physical, emotional, social and intellectual development is equally important. In a relaxed, accepting atmosphere children discover, interpret and define meaningful concepts necessary for future academic and social development. Many opportunities are provided for sharing and cooperative play.
They offer 3 and 4 year old morning and afternoon programs.

Having several young children, I know the preschool scene well. Our two daughters attended another local preschool in the prior years. While thier experience was fine, we had no idea what we were missing until we sent our son to Shelburne Nursery School. It is absolutely amazing and I will list the reasons why we love the school.
1. The teachers are AMAZING. There are 4 teachers, which make the teacher/student ratio very...more

My son is in the 3 year old class this year and has absolutely loved it!!
He has a severe nut allergy and I was very nervous about sending him but the teachers have been absolutely amazing! They have gone above and beyond to keep him safe. I love how the preschool feels like a little family:)

SNS (Shelburne Nursery School) is a fabulous school. We have been involved with the school for 3 years now, and next year will be our 4th. Both of our boys will have attended the school and we couldn't be more trilled with the teachers and the school. My son has loved going to 'school' and has asked to go more! Not only does he have fun everyday, but he is also learning in a way that is fun and enjoyable. Our son has made great friends and...more

We send our 3 year old son to Shelburne Nursery School (SNS) and have been astounded by the great strides he has made socially and academically this Fall. The teachers really do an amazing job there and put their hearts into the kids. It's very comforting to us as parents to know he goes there. SNS has been an integral part of Shelburne since 1955 and we're very grateful to have it in our community.

I am compelled to write my first-ever review to extol the wonders of the Shelburne Nursery School, tucked in a sunlit, inspired and extraordinarily clean space in the village of Shelburne. As a parent and teacher who has volunteered in the school, it is with the greatest confidence that I make this recommendation. The four teachers bring to the school many decades of teaching experience, wonderfully diverse styles and a shared warmth and...more

Looking for a pre-school? Look no further. Shelburne Nursery School is a hidden treasure. I was so happy to have found it, after looking at 9 other schools!
The teachers are amazing and caring. My son wants to go there 7 days a week!

I love Shelburne Nursery School. I have one child who went through two years there and is now in kindergarten, and one who is currently attending. It was a big deal for us to choose a preschool, as it is for every parent, and the transition was big for all of us, but the teachers there helped every step of the way, and offer a vibrant and warm opportunity for children to grow and learn. I love that there are many opportunities for parents...more

Shelburne Nursery School is an extraordinary place - the teachers are exceptional and highly experienced. The head teacher has been there for nearly 20 years, and her dedication and professionalism are amazing. My son simply loves the school! The parent coop model provides a welcoming community and parents form close friendships alongside their children. Teachers provide personal attention to each child and his/her needs, and the curriculum...more

Great school. Great teachers. Great program. Great community. This is our third (and last!) child going through preschool and we feel lucky that each has had this experience and is heading off to Kindergarten with such a solid base for school.

Our family loves this school. I'm happy knowing my pre-schooler is in a safe environment. My wife is happy knowing our son is learning ALL he will need to know to give him a strong foundation for Kindergarten. My Pre-School son wakes up excited to go to school and play with his teachers and friends. He has been consistently thrilled at going to school for the last year and a half of attending SNS. I highly encourage others to look into SNS...more
