Nursery school

A nursery school is a school for the education of very young children. Such schools generally teach early social skills including interpersonal interaction, being a part of a group of peers, and class room skills such as following the instructions of a teacher. Some formal education also takes place, such as early reading or language skills. Some nursury schools have adopted specialized methods of teaching, such as Montessori schools.
