Hummingbird’s Nest guides children through right speech with songs, poetry, and rich images in storytelling.  Storytelling strengthens memory and attention, stimulates imagination and builds the foundations of inner picturing for reading.

Hummingbirds Nest preschool creates a holistic environment through imitation, repetition and strengthening the “DO-ing intelligence” through healthy movement, creative daily rhythm and experiential learning.  These aspects of the curriculum stimulate the child’s multiple intelligence into wholeness.





Hummingbirds Nest kindergarten is an extension of preschool.  Kindergarten is a partnering of new ideas within the world of the young child. The Kindergarten child has an enthusiasm for life, lives strongly in imagination and masters skills through a strong imitation of the teacher and the interaction with peers. Our curriculum mindfully prepares the child for the structures of elementary education.

Holiday Camps

To better serve the needs of our community, we offer camps during most school holiday breaks. Our camps are open children ages 3-6.5 years in the community as well as our enrolled students. You may enroll in individual holiday camps or all holiday camps.


Summer Camps

3 years - 6.5 years old

Sign up for summer fun as we celebrate our sunny days with outdoor water play, hikes in nature, craft making and cooking together. We offer movement games and songs, daily storytelling and puppet shows, and picnic lunches in the shade of our leafy trees.



Ms. Melinda works her magic with children like she is Queen of the Fairies.  As an adult, I too am mesmerized as she softly sings directions to the children and gently tell stories using puppets. There is so much breath and rhythm to the day. I wish I had Ms. Melinda when I was in preschool. Her heart has so much room to love every child for the special individual they are.
