The Children’s Garden 
Home Nursery


The Children's Garden Nursery was established in 2004 as a home preschool designed to nurture and protect the magic of early childhood through a nature and play-based Waldorf curriculum.

Our vision is to provide young children with a warm and nurturing first step away from home, one filled with outdoor play, natural crafts, bread baking, imaginative play, storytelling, songs and seasonal celebrations. The Children's Garden also strives to provide an environment and opportunities for parents to find community and support one another in their parenting adventures.

The Children's Garden serves children 2 and a half to 5 years old. We gather Monday-Friday 8:45am -12:45pm. Two,Three, Four and Five day options are available. 

Located in SW Durham, our little school includes a large outdoor playground, a garden, woods, swings,and a sandbox. Keeping us company are chickens, bunnies and two sweet dogs.
