The Young Children's Community

The Nest's Young Children's Community runs from 9:00 - 12:00 Monday-Friday, September-June, and is designed for children approximately 15 months - 36 months (3 years) old. It is important to us that The Nest is a good fit for you and your child, so the first step in the enrolment process is to contact us and set up a time to visit The Nest, meet the teacher, Alison, and get to know each other a little bit. 

Our first meeting will be scheduled for an afternoon, outside program hours.  This gives us the chance to truly talk, and gives your child the chance to explore the classroom and meet the teacher without lots of other toddlers around. The next step is to fill out an application form. After the initial visit, you and your child are more than welcome to come back during classroom hours to observe the program in action before committing to enrolment. 

We accept children into the program throughout the year, providing space is available. Enrolment for next school year (September 2017) will open in May.

Currently, there are three enrolment options available for the Young Children's Community:

2 mornings per week: Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday

3 mornings per week: Monday/Wednesday + Friday, or Tuesday/Thursday + Friday

5 mornings per week: Monday-Friday

A wholesome, seasonal and organic snack is served each day. 

Please Contact Us to set up a visit. We are so excited to meet you! 


Nestlings is a weekly group for babies from birth to 12 months, along with a parent or caregiver. The first Nestlings session will start in September 2017. Please check back in the spring for more details and information - we are hoping to have enrolment open by May!
