With the exception of a much needed “security” item, DO NOT bring personal toys to Nursery School! Personal toys often get lost, broken, or cause tears in a large group situation. TCNS has plenty of interesting toys to keep every child happy.


We get very messy at TCNS!  Play clothes and sneakers are highly recommended, especially for our playground.  Shoes with a good sole are a must on our climbing equipment.  Please help us keep your child safe.  We require that children keep something on their feet at all times during the school day.  Children are welcome to keep extra indoor shoes or slippers at TCNS.

Outdoor Play

Outdoor play is an integral part of the Nursery School program.  Your child should be appropriately dressed for outdoor play every day.  Snow pants are required for most of our winter activities.  If you feel that your child cannot go outside on a particular day you must pick him/her up 1/2 hour early.  We go out every day, except when it rains hard or when our thermometer reads below 20*F. Remember: there is no bad weather, just bad clothing!
