The Nest Early Learning Center

The Nest Early Learning Center is a privately owned preschool center located within First Christian Church in Stow, Ohio. The center's curriculum is Christ-centered, project-based and inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early learning.


The Nest’s mission is to provide children with a strong foundation for academic and social success. Through Christ-centered programming, children will develop empathy, compassion, problem solving skills and gratitude. Children will take ownership of their learning through our Reggio-inspired curriculum, in which the teacher shall follow the interests and questions of the children to guide instruction.


Children will learn through a curriculum that is:




21st Century Skill Driven

Enriched through STEAM opportunities

A place for children to find joy in learning through wonder.

"I can't say enough about how impactful the project based approach used at the Nest has been to her learning. She is taking away key skills in learning to collaborate and communicate with other children. Anne supports problem solving and critical thinking everyday and sparks creativity that has carried over into our home. All learning is through play!!" -Michelle S.
