At Washington University Nursery School, we believe that every child is a unique individual with his or her own pattern and timetable for social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth.

We support the learning process by offering child-centered activities that effectively engage students. We encourage creativity in all areas with a special focus on the arts to enhance language and thinking. Above all, our goals are that children will develop a genuine pleasure in learning, that they develop confidence in their ability to learn and to accomplish challenging tasks and that they gain experience and skills in interacting with others.

Our students and their families find their time with us both rewarding and stimulating. We invite you to call and make an appointment to visit our school.

From WUNS' 2014 - 2015 Parent Survey:

(WUNS) is a safe and wonderful place that fosters growth in a play-based (as it should be!) program.
The program has brought a structure and discipline and prepared my (child) well for kindergarten this year. I was amazed how the teachers cleverly integrated a variety of science/math/art/craft concepts into the curriculum so well.
The indoor and outdoor play areas are very nice, but what makes the school so special are the teachers and the caring, cooperative, loving atmosphere they foster among the students and throughout the classroom activities.
I particularly like the walks the class takes around campus. Those stick with (my child) and provide a wonderful learning opportunity and change of scenery.
The program has enhanced my child's social skills immensely in a supportive, safe environment.
I love that my child considers everyone in the class a friend (teachers included!).
The WUNS experience has been invaluable for both of my (children)....The emphasis on play, the classroom set-up, art, music, all of it is fabulous.
I love most that everything is presented as FUN, and although I know the teachers are gently encouraging kids to try new things and participate in all the areas and activities, the kids are ultimately allowed to explore at their own pace.
Our second time around we continue to love the nurturing learning environment, the best we have experienced with three kids in different pre-schools.
The teachers are all amazing, and administration, top-notch. WUNS nursery school is just an outstanding place!
