Del Mar Hills Nursery School to celebrate 40 years
The Del Mar Hills Nursery School will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a celebration on July 18.
Owners Jim and Polly Trump, who bought the school 12 years ago from founder Ursula Waddell, said they hope many alumni return to visit teachers who have been there for several decades.
“That’s the whole idea; the whole purpose behind doing this hopefully was to give a shout out to the community,” Jim Trump said.
The school combines several educational philosophies in its approach to teaching and emphasizes child development through interaction. The school combines the educational methods of Reggio Emilia, Orff Schulwerk, Fredrich Froebel and Montessori. Instead of spending most of their days in the classroom with the same grade, students, who range from 2 1/2 to 5 years old, are able to intermingle as part of their curriculum.
“It’s all about play and socialization because this is such a fertile time in a child’s development,” Jim Trump said.
Polly Trump, who was serving as the school’s director when she and Jim bought it from Waddell, said she is hopeful that the founder will be able to fly down from her home in Napa County.
Alumni are encouraged to attend. For more information, call (858) 755-8338.
