At the Nurtury, our name says it all. We are all nurtured here - children, parents and teachers. This is a place to be loved, respected and given encouragement to learn and grow.

The Nurtury® provides a warm, loving and caring environment for your child to learn, grow and develop school readiness and social development skills. Children develop to their fullest potential in family-based groupings (siblings stay together), while obtaining age-based instruction in development sessions.

From age 1-1/2 through 5th grade, we provide a variety of developmental and child care programs such as preschool development sessions, Full-Day Toddler and Preschool Enrichment, and school-age extended day programs (before and after school) that foster growth and education in a safe, warm, home-away-from-home environment. Our Private Kindergarten, chartered by the Ohio Department of Education combines exemplary curriculum with our "Nurtury style" of teaching and supporting young learners development.

The Nurtury is a model for quality in our profession - Such quality attracts talented professional teachers and parents who are looking for the best for their children. The Nurtury staff receives ongoing specialized training to ensure every child has the best start in life.

The Nurtury was the first early care & education program in Medina County to be awarded the Ohio Healthy Program Designation by the Medina County Health Department. This program promotes Healthy Children, Healthy Curriculum, implements a wellness policy, improves menus and encourages family participation.

"The leadership and staff at the Nurtury should be commended for their work and dedication to the health and well-being of their students," said Sharon L. Jaeger MS, RD, LD, Registered Dietitian and Ohio Healthy Program Trainer at the Medina County Health Department.

"From the moment I walked into the Nurtury, I felt comfortable with entrusting my children's education and care to them. By creating an individual approach for each and every child, their teaching style is truly unique. My two daughers have grown so much and our family has benefited from this experience."
