Westport Weston
Cooperative Nursery School

Our Outdoor Classroom continues to be a great attraction. Our Fours begin their day outside. Their energy is felt as they hatch their “plan.”

If the rain barrel is full, there may be enough mud pies and mud soup to go around. Or maybe the sand is wet and heavy and perfect for construction. Pipes are laid in shallow ditches or a hole four feet deep may be dug. The ideas are infinite.

There is something for everyone: books to read, hidey holes for a rest stop, a mud cook’s kitchen, a carpenters’ ladders to climb, a music wall to catch the beat, swings, slides, climbers and sled’s for when the snow flies. Teachers plan with great awareness of the children’s interest and abilities providing equipment that will even inspire some helpers to rake, shovel and sweep. We have busy days with busy people!
