Family-focused since 1946
Tri-Village Nursery School (TVN) is a cooperative, non-discriminatory, secular, non-profit school. We are located at 428 Kenwood Avenue in Delmar in the First United Methodist Church. We offer classes for three- and four-year-olds.
A parent-led cooperative
TVN is governed by a parent-led board. The board works closely with TVN's teachers and the education director. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a part of next year's TVN board.
Creating a love of learning
Tri-Village Nursery School offers children a variety of opportunities, experiences, and programs that help them develop an early love of learning. As a cooperative pre-school, we also provide a meaningful role for parents in the educational process. We celebrate individual differences and realize that self-esteem and self-confidence are essential for growth and learning. As a community, we are committed to active, reflective, creative learning. Our activities are child-centered. We believe a child's growth and development are supported when the school environment is supportive, nurturing, and non-threatening.
Big, bright classrooms with creative learning centers
All classrooms have large windows providing plenty of natural light. Each area of the room is designed to capture the student's curiosity through play and experimentation. Classes are led by a teacher who team teaches with an assistant. Classes are also generally assisted by a parent helper, providing an excellent teacher/student ratio. Our three-year-old classes are designed to accommodate 14 students apiece. There are 16 students in each of our four-year-old classes. See our pictures of our classrooms!
