A Chat with Nesting Place Preschool
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our mission is to provide a unique and enriching preschool experience [by providing] quality care, organic and healthy foods, and natural and green cleaning products. Nesting Place wants to change the perception of what daycare should be and to far exceed the expectations of parents.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Nesting Place was founded by Simone Rogers as an in-home daycare. Simone is very passionate about giving children an early start toward their love of learning and health. As part of this philosophy, she has incorporated Reggio Emilia-inspired learning experiences and organic foods into the curriculum.
What do you love most about your job?
As a teacher, I believe my main role is as a facilitator of learning. I strongly believe that children learn best when they are active and able to explore and experience new things. My view on education is in part informed by the Project method, the Reggio Emilia approach, and “Last Child in the Woods.“
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
“He loved it here! He still asks if he’s going every day and says he misses Simone. She is a wonderful teacher. If we ever get the chance to take him back to Nesting Place Preschool we definitely will! I also recommend it to everyone!” – Rachael Allison (parent)
