In a secure, nurturing environment, HACNS children develop an enduring love of learning through imaginary play, developmentally appropriate art and science projects, books, music, and movement. Our uncommonly large, sunny, sandy playground is an urban oasis where they have an opportunity to master new physical challenges as well.

Children are innately curious. They want to touch, smell, taste, see, and listen to everything. They want to talk, they want to imitate, they want to explore. and the more they learn, the more they want to learn. Because young children are so open to environmental iNFLuences, it is important to encourage this exploration so that they become active, rather than passive, learners.
At Haight Ashbury Community Nursery School, children are free to choose from a variety of creative projects indoors, or they may play outdoors-riding, climbing, digging, picking, splashing, and swinging. We believe that child-directed play, supported by a variety of interesting materials and obliging teachers, best fulfills the Preschool-age child’s developmental requirements-mental, emotional, physical, and social.
We are also committed to diversity, which encourages learning. From snacks to songs, projects to stories, throughout the day our children learn about their world from member families with wildly different cultural backgrounds-and common goals.
