St. Paul’s Weekday Nursery School

Serving the community continuously since 1960


St. Paul’s Weekday Nursery School, located in Bedford, Massachusetts is a secular preschool where children learn through and from play, which is the child’s work. The curriculum is designed to foster a child’s natural curiosity, providing many opportunities for sensory exploration. In a warm and caring environment, we encourage children to question, to articulate feelings, to experiment with various methods of problem solving, to empathize with others, and to develop self-help skills. Pre-reading and pre-math skills organically occur through activities offered in play situations.
