The Madison Community House Nursery School Enrichment Program is an exciting educational program designed to build on the emerging skills of preschoolers. It is a continuation of our traditional nursery school program, extending the day from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. The children bring their lunch, participate in an outdoor playtime and attend an age appropriate enrichment class. Our goal is to provide fun and educational experiences and prepare children for Kindergarten.
