Plan Your Visit To The Nest

The Nest is committed to being an inclusive environment. We believe that everyone has the right to play and learn in community, regardless of age, gender identity, race, national origin, documentation status, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or religion. When we come together in the Nest, we are creating meaningful, if brief, community. Please offer other caregivers and their children respect, kindness, and curiosity. The materials are set out as invitations to play and explore; let your child lead the way and show you how they want to play. Caregivers are encouraged to play, too!
