Pauline Foulkes, Director/Principal
Welcome to Children's Garden Nursery School!
I have been very fortunate to call Children's Garden my 'home away from home since our doors opened in our only location back in 1986. Over these years, my goal as Director /Owner of the school has always been to maintain integrity with all aspects of the school environment and for children to receive the highest quality of education.
Due to COVID, the decision not to offer preschool during the 2020/2021 school year was a very difficult one. Not being able to allow these young children to experience a program without the restraints of masking, social distancing etc. went against everything our school stood for. For the 2021/2022 school year, we are limiting the number of preschool children to a class of 5 and these children will be over 3 years of age when school opens in September. Plans for future preschool years will be made as we learn more about COVID and how we can continue to offer a preschool program that each child deserves to enjoy freely.
My commitment to the children is to provide them with both a solid academic and social foundation during these early informative years.
My commitment to parents is always to be accountable and fulfill their expectations of an excellent school experience for their children.
I could not meet any of my commitments without my wonderful staff. Although we have a professional workplace, our ability to have fun with the children while working together is what gives Children's Garden Nursery School a welcoming atmosphere the moment you walk through the doors. (Hopefully, walking through our doors will be in the near future as we navigate our way through COVID restrictions.) It is important to me that all of my staff are respected, valued, treated equally, and working at Children’s Garden is not just a job, but a way to express their true passion and what they do best….teach children!
I hope that you come and visit us and get to see first-hand why thousands of children have started their educational journey at Children’s Garden Nursery School over the past 35 years.
