Avon Nursery School is committed to providing an exceptional preschool experience for
young children between the ages of 3 and 5. ANS is one of the very few
nationally-accredited, dedicated nursery school programs in Avon, and one of three in
the Farmington Valley.
We strive to enhance self esteem by offering unique opportunities and choices for children.
This allows them the freedom to explore, discover, practice and develop an active, lifelong
love of learning in a safe and loving environment.
In carefully planning our curriculum, Avon Nursery School keeps in mind not only the
Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards (CTELDS) but also elements from
The Creative Curriculum.
We help each child to develop his/her unique social, language and motor skills by
participating in dramatic play, building activities, sensory and science experiments,
music and movement, visual and fine art projects, reading and writing adventures and
outdoor play. We encourage curiosity about our surroundings and foster an appreciation
for nature and the world we live in.
In addition, Avon Nursery School intentionally plants and nurtures the seeds of peace
and tolerance. We help children learn how to sustain friendships, develop empathy, and
resolve conflicts. We do not discriminate on the basis of religion, race, sex, cultural
heritage, political beliefs, national origin or disability.
Avon Nursery School offers three programs in a half-day class format:
