The Metropolitan Nursery School was established in 1966 by Metropolitan Memorial United Methodist Church to serve its members and the community. It is the school’s philosophy that young children thrive best in a small family-oriented, nurturing environment. It is this philosophy and the continuity of a warm and caring faculty that gives the school its special style and flavor.
