The Bing Nursery School. The Child's View.
Berquist, Robert, Ed.
Photographs, diagrams, and words are used to tell about the nursery school at Stanford University. Supported largely by tuition, this school enrolls 270 pupils who attend school during one of three different session schedules. A full-time staff of 12 is assisted by students from psychology, education, and nursing. The environment offers wide-ranging opportunities for free movement and adventure, and a program of unstructured creative play that emphasizes the child's development as an individual first and a social being second. Self-discovery is the guiding principle; self-reliance the goal. Space and privacy are provided in the 3,000 square foot structure, including porches, overhang, and covered walks. Landscaping has been done with concern for the child's imagination and physical exercise. Interior environmental control is maintained by three independent systems. (RH)
