Our smallest, coziest center is nestled on the campus of Yale’s Divinity School. With only three classrooms caring for 24 infants and toddlers, we have the peaceful, zen-like time and space to perfect our R.I.E. practice. At The Nest, we honor your tears as much as your giggles and shout from the rooftops “babies are people too!” The Nest enrolls children from families affiliated with Yale University. Faculty members with young children will be given placement priority.

The school is open Monday – Friday, 7 a.m.-6 p.m. (excluding holidays)
