The Nature Nest is a unique child care center offering a wholesome, child-centered, curiosity-based approach to learning and development. It has been a home-based business since 2014 and is run by Sarah Myriam, a Parsippany resident and mother of four. Myriam started her career in early childhood care and development 20 years ago and has a long-history of teaching and managing both public and private childcare centers.
Myriam is extremely passionate about family wellness and an advocate for all things natural. As she states, “”I want to change the world! Back to the basic natural principles we’ve forgotten. I believe we need to teach children and families how to live, love, and truly enjoy nature and all it has to offer us. It gives us all we will ever need.”
The Nature Nest approach is founded on the believe that children benefit most from a calm and simple environment where they are immersed in the wonders of life and experience the world through music and movement, art, nature, cooking, play, handwork, helping and stories.
Children learn through a variety of self-driven multi-disciplinary activities that incorporate science, math, language arts, music, movement, visual arts, social studies and practical life.
In 2019 The Nature Nest is opening a 4,600 square foot facility at 220 Vreeland Avenue in Boonton, formerly the site of the Ada Budrick Child Care & Learning Center. The new facility features multiple classrooms, a common multi-purpose area, an outdoor playground and learning space and a commercial kitchen.
With the opening of their new facility The Nature Nest will be able to welcome many new families to the and offer additional services and programs. While the plan is to initially focus on full and part-time care for children ages two months to Kindergarten the vision is to serve school age children and the rest of the family too.
