Profile: Silver Spring Nursery School (SSNS) is a part-time, play-based, cooperative nursery school for children ages 2–5 years. Teachers and parents work together to provide a secure, relaxed atmosphere where each child can progress at his or her own pace. Our professional award-winning teachers, assisted by the parents, set the educational stage; guide the group unobtrusively; and maintain an atmosphere of warmth, friendliness, and freedom within carefully set limits. We offer a developmentally appropriate environment that is rich in possibilities for exploring, enhancing their curiosity, learning flexibility, understanding differences, learning problem solving, thinking creatively, making choices, and accepting responsibilities. In addition to co-oping in the classroom every other week, each family is involved in the administration of our school, creating a community for all children to thrive.
