Due to operational and building challenges that we could not resolve, we regret to announce that The College of Wooster Nursery School program will be put on pause for the ’23-’24 academic year. This is very sad news for a beloved program that means so much to so many Wooster families.

We are still working with incomplete information on the existing Westminster location, but we realized we could not find a quick pathway to open this fall, while remaining compliant. We also could not open elsewhere with the coverage offers we were able to obtain in such a short time frame.

We apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment that this decision causes. We thank our teaching staff, who have cared for our young students for decades and led them on paths of creativity, as well as our parents, partners, and friends for their understanding, as we explore partnership possibilities that would allow us to reopen.
