Now open! Alphabet Academy delivered its fourth school, The Nest – Shoreline Campus, in September of 2019, serving our shoreline friends and neighbors with children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. Consistent with our other three locations, The Nest focuses on providing a unique, joyful, and progressive school experience using RIE as the foundation for our social and emotional teaching practice.

We are excited to explore all that this generous space has to offer and bring our magic to the shoreline. Highlights include:

  • 1,000 square foot vegetable garden
  • Chickens and dwarf goats to occupy the barn
  • Beautifully renovated school and classrooms
  • Chef-run, open kitchen at the heart of our school
  • Large, open fields
  • Rock hills nestled in the shade
  • Walking paths in the woods
