Robbin’s Nest - and why we love our nest …

From our first visit to Robbin’s Nest, I knew that we were in a good place.

The Director, Ms. Rosalie, could see that my son was nervous and allowed us to make several visits prior to starting school. When the first day finally arrived, there were tears. But as I drove away from the school, I knew he was in good hands.

Sure enough, I received an email within minutes assuring me that he was acclimating well. This was the beginning of the great communication that I would experience with Robbin’s Nest. Teachers were always attentive and available.

The Robbin’s Nest team takes time to individualize their approach to supporting each child. When my son was anxious, Ms. Rosalie and his teacher Ms. Nydia made him their “special helper.” They greeted him each morning and gave him “important” classroom jobs to help him transition into his day.

Their focus on meeting his emotional needs made a tremendous difference in his school success. My son is now in first grade and testing at the third grade level for math and reading. I attribute his success to the quality instruction and nurturing environment of Robbin’s Nest. We found a wonderful school family!
