About the Nurtury

Mary Lee Kubasta Director Our Director/Owner With a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education and over 40 years of experience as teacher and administrator of high quality programs for young children, Mary Lee Kubasta has been an instructor in Early Childhood Education at Cuyahoga Community College and has served on the college's Early Childhood Education Advisory Committee. Her commitment to the nurturing and education of young children is reflected in The Nurtury's various programs and in her support of faculty and parents.

Our Professional Staff keenly understands young children; they know how to guide them toward becoming healthy human beings. The Nurtury's Lead Teachers are degreed in Early Childhood-related fields. In addition, all teachers and assistants participate in a minimum of 15 hours of professional development each year.

Longevity/Reputation - The Nurtury is in its 45th year. Staffed with a faculty of seasoned early childhood education professionals, the longevity of our staff members is a true testament to the success of our nurturing philosophy, which nourishes the continuity of our program for enrolled families and children. The Nurtury's tradition of high-quality standards attracts and retains qualified teachers - most have been employed with us 8 years or more.

Our Founder - Founded in 1977, The Nurtury was established by Rosemary Cooksey who wanted to bring a leading-edge child development school to Medina.

Safety/Health - In addition to our door code entry system, your family will have your own "Color Code" assuring you that only persons you authorize may pick up your child...most classrooms have one-way windows...All employees must (1) have a criminal record background check; (2) attend training sessions every year; and (3) maintain current CPR, first aid and communicable disease prevention credentials.  Our building is professionally cleaned every evening.

Color Code Release System

Our release system was recognized by CBS-TV as "Exemplary." Each family is given a confidential "Color Code." If an adult picking up a child is not recognized the Code needs to be given. If parent calls for account info-code must be given.
Basically, the Code "unlocks" The Nurtury®.

Much like our children, great things come in small packages.
The same holds true for The Nurtury. The fenced, lakeside location, designed specifically for The Nurtury, was built in summer 1978, provides a tranquil, scenic environment. Construction of the spacious custom-wood playground and deck with sandbox yard was completed in summer 1979. The kindergarten wing was added in summer 1984, the office wing in January 1990, and the foyer in 1993. The building includes six classrooms, in addition to a kitchen, office and faculty room.
