Alphabet Academy delivered its fourth school, The Nest – Shoreline Campus, in September of 2019, serving our shoreline friends and neighbors with children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. Consistent with our other three locations, The Nest focuses on providing a unique, joyful, and progressive school experience using RIE as the foundation for our social and emotional teaching practice.

We are excited to explore all that this generous space has to offer and bring our magic to the shoreline. Highlights include:

  • *New* outdoor kindergarten program
  • Outdoors all day, everyday
  • Vegetable gardens
  • Chickens and dwarf goats to occupy the barn (coming 2021)
  • Beautifully renovated school and classrooms
  • Chef-prepared, organic cuisine
  • Large, open fields
  • Rock hills nestled in the shade
  • Walking paths in the woods
