Summer Fun Business Profile: Miss Tanya’s nurtures children’s curiosity

by | Mar 23, 2023 | Business, Featured

If families are on the hunt for an outdoors-focused summer program, Tanya Trainor, the owner of Miss Tanya’s Family of Nursery Schools, says she knows just the place. “We spend 99 percent of our time outside during the summer,” she says, “and we are a process-oriented program, which means that we’re more interested in the mess than the product. Children have the freedom to make their activities what they would like them to be.”

Miss Tanya’s welcomes children ages 2 through 7 and has three locations across Westborough: Longmeadow School, Nursery School and Woodland School. A nursery school program is available at each site while the toddler program is housed at Longmeadow and the kindergarten program is at Woodland.

All sites have special summer programs starting in June that range from one- to two-week sessions for three to five days per week. Children can expect lots of water-based, hands-on activities and even canopies and quiet areas to rest in the fresh air. The summer sessions are themed with titles like Messy Magic, Ooey Gooey Fun, Move Your Muscles and Kids in the Kitchen.

“We have a lot of choose-your-own-adventure time,” Trainor adds, “known in the olden days as ‘free play,’ where children can do whatever they’d like within the environment that has been set up by the teachers.”

For parents looking beyond the summer, Trainor notes that Miss Tanya’s is enrolling for the fall and has an outdoors focus throughout the year. “We sled in the winter and run through sprinklers in the summer,” she says with a laugh.

Miss Tanya’s schools are staffed by caring, long-tenured, qualified educators. For more information on all three of Miss Tanya’s locations and to learn what makes them unique, visit misstanya.com.
