Our Mission

 Stevens Forest Nursery School is a non-profit, cooperative school for young children. We provide a high-quality educational program for the children in our community to help them grow and develop physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually in an age-appropriate environment.  We utilize a state- approved curriculum for daily instruction.  SFNS requires on-going professional development for our teachers through their attendance at classes and conferences to improve their skills and knowledge.  SFNS requires and promotes a strong relationship with families, community agencies and other outside resources as part of our program.  SFNS does not discriminate with regard to race, color, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, handicap or any other status or condition protected by law, in the admission of members or students nor in the employment of staff. 


Our Philosophy

 Our staff and families work together to create a safe, loving environment for the children on a daily basis. 

 Our program is based on PLAY.  We provide an enriching curriculum through The Creative Curriculum, which is based upon developmentally appropriate early education standards. 

Our program believes in a strong partnership with the families.  Our parents volunteer in the classroom, serve as administrators for the program, serve on committees to further enhance our program and evaluate all the program�s aspects to ensure continued growth of our children and our program.

 Our program believes in the professional development of our teachers and assistants for themselves, our program, Office of Child Care licensing requirements and the Maryland State Credential Program.
