Woodland Parent Nursery School

Now Open for Enrollment!

Woodland Parent Nursery School (WPNS) is a non-profit parent cooperative preschool that has been a part of the community since 1956. WPNS fosters parent participation and parent education in addition to providing an enriching early childhood learning environment.

Our pre-school program (ages 3-5) is run under the direction of Debbie Roman-Whitehouse. Parents and Tots (18-36 months) is run under the direction of Kim Hammons. Both are experienced, certified teachers. Parents participate by leading art, cooking, and imaginative play activities. Parents also lead snack and storytime tables and help with the preparations for each school day.

Our classes are small and we maintain a 5-to-1 ratio of children to adults. We emphasize the learning of social skills — cooperating, sharing, taking turns and problem solving. We also promote self-confidence, awareness of others, and the positive expression of emotions and needs. We introduce children to colors, shapes, letters, sounds, measuring, counting, patterns and rhythm.

    2007-12-30 15:47:38   Both my children attended Woodland Parent Nursery School. I think it is the best preschool Woodland has to offer. We had a wonderful experience and met some of our best friends through the school's amazing community of parents. If you are looking for a preschool, be sure to arrange a time with Teacher Debbie so that you can visit the school and see it running in action.

So warm and inviting, Teacher Debbie fosters creativity, exploration, and self confidence in her students while teaching them to be caring and responsible individuals. We feel so fortunate to be apart of such an experience. —Abby'smom
