Why Us

Our Approach

The Nurturing Nest is a fusion of a home daycare and a center based setting. Providing our families with this unique combination offers the best of both settings in one nurturing environment. Our center has three working owners on site to ensure the consistency of staff and classroom routines. The Nurturing Nest is a secure child care center to keep our parents mind at ease while they leave their little ones in our care. Our main entrance is equipped with a touch pad entry providing each family with their own private passcode.

Our Staff

Our staff of dedicated teachers implement fun activities that enhance a child’s language development, social skills, cognitive skills, and fine/gross motor skills. Our teachers instruct through a creative based curriculum which meets the State of CT educational guidelines. Their goal is to nurture each child’s natural curiosity and encourage them to never lose the excitement of learning something new! All of our staff are CPR and First Aid certified and are required to participate in Continuing Education training through the year.

Parent Reviews

This center is amazing. They have beyond exceeded my expectations from management to the teachers. Being able to be worry free about my daughters care while I’m at work is priceless. The directors are fantastic and really take time to know the kids and the families. They are also hands on with the kids which is a rare find. This is hands down the best daycare center.

I have a child in the infant room and one in the preschool. They both love going to school everyday and you can tell they are completely loved by all of the staff! I can’t say enough wonderful things about this amazing daycare! We are so lucky to have such wonderful people watching our children!

Exceptional educational program – above and beyond any typical daycare center!  Inviting, warm, and caring environment. My daughter sings songs and tells us about her day all night when she leaves “school” for the day! Her preschool teacher is amazing and the owners are outstanding! A lot of heart and soul went into this educational daycare and it shows in every way! I would not recommend anywhere else! A hidden gem to have in our community!

Beautiful space; educationally enriched decor without being overstimulating. Love the neutral colors. Attentiveness of the owners in the day to day operations with caring staff. Children are happy and smiling. Highly recommend!

I am really happy with this center, it is very clean and small. When I pick up my daughter (3 months) she is always being held or looks happy. She also has consistency of the same two people taking care of her. They are true to their motto it is a center that feels more like a home based daycare with the same people everyday.
