Our purpose is to provide a positive, safe healthy environment in which children learn through a play-based curriculum. A close connection with parents, teachers, and the community at large sets the stage for children to obtain confidence, self-esteem and social skills. Silverspot is a parent-run, non-profit co-operative nursery school working to create a community of encouragement and learning for families. Silverspot accepts children between the ages of 2.5 years and 5 years 11 months. We accept children who are not yet potty trained.

Food Guidelines 

For the time being, due to Covid -19 protocols, we will not be serving snack “ family style” and will require families to pack a snack as well as a lunch for their child at school.  Students eat outdoors in a picnic-style setting on a mat. The school also will check with student’s various common food allergies (nut, dairy).
