Our Classrooms

Children use all five senses to learn, so we have designed their environment at The Nest to reflect this.

Our curriculum follows Missouri Early Learning Standards and interweaves art, music, science, math, pretend play, and literacy and sensory experiences throughout a child’s day. Each classroom is equipped with personal storage space, hand washing sinks, and diaper changing areas.


The center's playground and outdoor spaces are designed to be learning environments that incorporate areas for art, music, science and sensory, dramatic play, nature interactions, and large motor play. Children often take walks in the neighborhood or explore our vast outdoor campus. A favorite space is CRS’s community garden. Children are able to see plants grow from seed to harvest!
