Perinton Nursery School is a play-based, cooperative preschool where kids learn, grow, make friends, and have fun! Serving Fairport since 1958, Perinton Nursery School is not just a school, but a community of families and teachers working together to create an ideal learning environment for young children. In our spacious, sun-filled classroom you will find children playing, exploring, collaborating with classmates, and developing the skills to become self-directed learners. Our play-based curriculum and educational philosophy are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. As a cooperative preschool, you will also find parents assisting teachers in our 3s and 4/5s classrooms. Outside of class time, all of our parents participate in the administration and maintenance of the school via membership on our board, a committee, or by taking on job assignments. Throughout the year, social events for parents and children, bring families together, creating community and fostering life-long friendships.
