About Us

Founded in 1983, West St. Paul Co-operative Nursery School first developed as a result of like-minded families in the community coming together. Our parent and teacher run school operates on a not-for-profit basis. Our amazing long time teacher Sheri Owen has been the key to our nursery school’s success. She has nurtured our children by positively guiding them through their first educational experience.

Our Program/Philosophy

West St. Paul Nursery School attempts to provide a warm, loving and encouraging atmosphere. The program tries to stimulate the child’s senses through various activities and nurture their independence and confidence so they can become contributing members of our society. We concern ourselves with the total development of the child: physical, intellectual, social, emotional and moral. Activity-based learning is encouraged so that each child may develop their own personality and children work at learning through play and interaction with their peers. While the children move freely in the nursery school setting, they are developing their own self-discipline, self-help skills and the ability to discriminate choices.
