by SERENA FINE ENGLISH, Director, The William Woodward, Jr. Nursery School

A good nursery school is one which addresses all areas of children’s development, enhances their strengths, helps them to work on areas that may be harder for them, and prepares them well for future academic experiences.

Most important, however, is a school’s emphasis on instilling character and empathy towards others. While some children seem to have an unusual capacity to empathize with others, empathy is not only an innate quality: it is a combination of what children learn at home and at school.

Along with the idea of romantic love, she was introduced to
another—physical beauty. Probably the most destructive ideas in
the history of human thought. Both originated in envy, thrived in
insecurity, and ended in disillusion.
