Our Credentials

Our Dual Licensing - In addition to holding a typical license from the Department of Jobs and Family Services, we are recognized as a "chartered non-public school" by the Ohio Department of Education. This ensures that we have met educational standards as well as health and safety standards.

A Program for Medina's Children - Our programs are designed to meet the needs of Medina children by our own teachers. We are not a branch or franchise; tuitions paid by parents go directly back into current programming.

The NurturyŽ is a model for quality in our profession - Such quality attracts the best professional staff and appeals to parents who desire the best for their children.
