Learning through play
Why Choose KT?
Katrina Trask Nursery School offers a special opportunity where parents and teachers work together in nurturing the growth and development of children in the classroom. Enthusiastic parental support is one of our school’s greatest resources.
Our school offers parents the opportunity to actively participate in their child’s school day on a regular basis. We offer alternating parent helper days to give every family the chance to participate in the classroom. Parents, family members or a family friend are always invited and encouraged to stay on their child’s helper days. On your child’s special day they are the “star student!”
A child’s first classroom is home and the first teachers are parents. It therefore makes sense for preschool to be an extension of this. KTNS celebrates the connection between home and school by inviting parents to be a part of their child’s preschool experience. We welcome parent helpers throughout the year and have several events that bring all of our families together.
Katrina Trask Nursery School is a wonderful place to get to know other families through events such as parent socials, pizza night, family pumpkin carving, pajama night, and other events. The KT “family” is a warm and friendly extended community for the children to grow and learn within.
When you ask a family that has attended Katrina Trask Nursery School they will tell you that your entire family will be a special part of the school. Being a part of KTNS provides more than just a strong foundation for nurturing a love for learning, it also builds a community of supportive friends that last for years.
“I have been very impressed with the quality of the education my daughter has received. The teachers are kind, competent, creative, and extremely thoughtful. (They never send you home with wet paint, and understand that parents often have many things to juggle.) I know there are lots of choices in our area for preschool…we are so happy we picked Katrina Trask Nursery School.” -Melissa O.
“I would recommend KT to anyone looking for a pre-school for their child. The teachers have really taken the time to get to know each child and our son has learned that school is a fun, welcoming place which was our main goal for pre-k.” -Tiffany & Paul T.
A Nut-Free Environment
Due to the increased prevalence of nut allergies and the possibly severe reactions they can provoke, we enforce a nut-free environment. Nuts are not allowed in snacks or lunches, and are not used in arts and crafts projects. This policy benefits the health and safety of the children in our program.
KTNS is located in the historic Nolan House building of the Presbyterian-New England Congregational Church, but is not affiliated with the Church.
