MNS Train field trip to Washington Park

Today the children, and grown-ups  enjoyed a train ride field trip to Washington Park in Burlingame.  Our 2 & 3 year old class boarded Cal-Train at the San Bruno station, and the kiddos had to make the big decision of sitting upstairs or downstairs.  After settling into our seats, we all were quickly smiling, talking, laughing and singing; much to the amusement of the morning commuters!  We even caught a quick glimpse of Millbrae Nursery school from the train windows as we zoomed by.  At Washington Park we enjoyed a delicious snack of homemade pumpkin muffins, fresh fruit, cheese and juice. We ended our fieldtrip by blowing gallons of bubbles into the air, and sleepily riding the train back to school.

Millbrae Fire Department Visits the MNS Pre-K class

The children from the Pre-K class were really excited that the fire fighters visited them last Thursday. The children got a tour of the fire truck and a look inside.

The History of Millbrae Nursery School

In 1938, a group of mothers and fathers desired a rich and meaningful play and learning experience for their preschool children. Millbrae Nursery School was born. The fledgling school bore no physical resemblance to our school as it is today, but its ideals provided then, as they do now, a safe and attractive place where a child finds equipment for active play and where books and creative media for quiet play are available to his curious and expressive nature. A child learned then, as now, to use his body; to cope with his own feelings and emotions; to get along with others; to satisfy his curiosity; to widen his experience; to accept limitations; to communicate with others; to grow in self-confidence and self-reliance.

The school has reached its 70th year of serving children and families and is going strong with three classes. The school is constantly changing to meet the needs of the children and their parents. Extended care is available for working parents and for other parents in the school who need it on an occasional basis.

Millbrae Nursery School provides you with an opportunity to share a wonderful experience with your child. You can enrich your life as your child enriches theirs; sharing their education during the formative years when parent participation really makes a difference in the development of their character. The families involved in Millbrae Nursery School continue to experience a rich and meaningful play and learning experience for their children, as well as support and learning experiences for themselves. Millbrae Nursery School truly enbodies a place where everyone can grow and learn.
