Film Summary:

Princeton Nursery School's mission is to provide a happy atmosphere for children at an affordable cost for their parents. Many of the school's parents are working, going to school, single -- or all three! The video chronicles the nursery school's history, as well as its daily routine and problems, including the recurring struggle to get loving but time-crunched parents to become -- and stay -- more involved.

The Princeton Nursery School was founded in 1929 to respond to the needs of local mothers looking to place their children in a caring and educational environment while they worked outside the home. Children at the Princeton Nursery School experience diversity and daily successes, develop healthy attitudes toward mistakes, assume responsibility for their personal space and materials, and encounter decision-making opportunities in the planning of their independent activities.
