IRNS is a fantastic preschool. Very warm and welcoming, the teachers treat each child as an individual. My son has advanced greatly in his social skills, and they do a great job with the alphabet, calendar, and everything! He was very resistant to singing and dancing with the group but they got through to him in that department too! They have really helped my child blossom! Their rates are reasonable and they have tuition assistance available based on need. No one has to be left out!
This school is nothing short of wonderful! The teachers are absolutely dedicated to providing a warm, nurturing, learning environment. I can't say enough about the effort they put in every day. My child comes home with happy stories and super creative art projects. She loves being there; any day that's not a school day she asks me when she can go again. What a great way to introduce her to the concept of school!
The teachers at IRNS are amazing and there are a lot of great families here too! I am amazed at what my three year old has learned plus the field trips!! They are also moving to a new location this fall in downtown Canaan. Highly Recommend!!!
Both of my children have attended Indian River Nursery School. I love the fact that the curriculum covers both academics and play! The children loved this school, and their teachers. Parent involvement and support is phenominal! It's a network of both family and friends. I highly recommend this school. Honestly, I think this is the best preschool in, not only the Mascoma Valley, but the surrounding Upper Valley area!
I checked out 6 preschools before enrolling my child here and I've been impressed with the quality teachers, the bright, cheery appearance of the classroom, and all that my child learns there. Fantastic playground too. It's a diamond in the rough.
