Our Facilities

New Morning Nursery School is located on the second floor of the Wingra School, 718 Gilmore St, Madison, WI. Among our facilities are three classrooms, two outdoor playgrounds, and access to the gymnasium. The building is owned by Wingra School, a private, non-profit, K-8, progressive school whose program occupies the majority of the space in the building.

play-based curriculum

Our classrooms are designed with areas for both quiet and active play. Age-appropriate activity centers in the rooms may include sensory tables, blocks, art tables and easels, reading and writing areas, kitchen and dramatic play spaces, and lofts.

The space is child-centered both physically and philosophically, and the environment allows children to explore and develop social skills, language, mathematical concepts, music, art, creative dramatics, science, and movement. Each day provides opportunities for both large and small motor skill development.
