About Mayflower

Our Mission

Mayflower Nursery School nurtures young children in an atmosphere of acceptance and caring, offering a variety of learning experiences for students to explore their world so that each child develops self-esteem, a sense of belonging and a love of learning.

What We Do Best

We teach the love of learning to children ages 2 through 5 years in a healthy, safe and active atmosphere. We build a community of learners through early relationships with teachers, peers and families.

Young children who develop positive relationships in preschool continue to be successful learners throughout their school years and continue to have positive relationships with peers and teachers.

Mayflower is state-licensed and does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, handicap, religion or national origin.

The children spend at least 30 minutes outside each day, playing in our outdoor play space located adjacent to the school building or taking a walk in the surrounding neighborhood.

Children should always be dressed for the weather, whether that’s for cold and blustery days or wet and muddy days.

We only play indoors if it is pouring rain, excessively windy, temperatures are below zero degrees (with or without the windchill), temperatures and over 90 degrees, or if there is any other dangerous weather conditions.

At Mayflower we teach the concept Eat A Rainbow, which is perfect for preschoolers to learn how to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables each day. We demonstrate how eating different colors of fruits and vegetables at meals and snacks can be a fun way to eat well and get a variety of nutrients.

Learning to make positive food choices when children are young helps to establish lifelong habits of choosing and eating healthy food.

Families take turns providing a fresh fruit and/or vegetable snack for the whole class, which is served along with crackers (typically Ritz-type crackers or graham crackers) and milk or water.

Mayflower Nursery School is a nut free facility.
