The Abigail Lundquist Botstein Nursery School and Children's Center is a campus early childhood program serving the Bard community and beyond.
Our program mirrors Bard's value on progressive education for our youngest citizens.
Our Program and Philosophy
Early childhood is a unique period of life and young children learn differently than school-aged-children.
The Pedagogy of Listening
Listening to children is like opening a curtain or driving away a blanket of fog. I encourage you to listen to what we often do not have time or patience to listen to; namely the extraordinary laboratory of experiments that constitutes the child standing by our side.
