Costimate: $338/wk

Paloma's Nest strives to create a nurturing and respectful "home away from home" for infants and toddlers. Authentic, trusting, and respectful relationships with children and families are at the heart of our work. The gentle rhythms of home life and nature provide the basis of our curriculum which we further enrich with intentional opportunities for exploration and discovery.

Our program is informed by current brain and child development research, the work of Magda Gerber (RIE) and Emmi Pikler, the schools of Reggio Emilia, and the principles of LifeWays.

At Paloma s Nest our goal is to work in partnership with parents and the children themselves to nurture a compassionate sense of wonder in each child. This goal includes:
- Confidence in self
- Intellectual curiosity and interest
- Deep connection with fellow humans and other living things
- A reverence for the planet
