Philosophy

Malibu Methodist Nursery School (MMNS) embraces childhood as a magical time. MMNS supports deep curiosity that drives children’s interest to understand and discover their world and their place in it.

Children have the right to a safe, loving and nurturing environment in which to grow and explore; they are born with a natural ability to learn from their surroundings and experiences. 

We believe that a structured and formal learning introduced too early does not prepare children for a creative and rapidly changing world, nor does it provide a solid conceptual foundation for future academic experiences.  Therefore, we provide a curriculum that flows from the children’s needs and interests rather than one imposed upon them by adults.
