"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." - William Butler Yeats
Our Mission The mission of Avon Nursery School is to instill a passion for learning and a strong moral foundation in young children. Avon Nursery School offers the highest quality early childhood education for 3 to 5 year olds. This is accomplished by actively following rigorous NAEYC standards, by using a challenging and creative hands-on / minds-on curriculum, and by providing a safe and loving place where peace, friendship, empathy and tolerance can be practiced. Our Belief Statement We believe that learning is a lifelong adventure.
We believe in facing each day with minds open to knowledge and hearts open to love.
We believe in the freedom to wonder, to ask, to explore, to create and to imagine.
We believe that success means doing our best, being our best and feeling proud of our effort.
We believe that every one of us has special talents, and that the talents of each of us, help all of us.
We believe in ourselves, in each other and in God whom we thank for the blessings he shows us each day.
