Wee People Nursery School
Wee People Nursery School



Wee People Nursery School is located at 2248 Walworth-Marion Road. It is near the 4 corners in the village of Walworth across the street from the Post Office. It is centrally located for easy access to the surrounding communities.

Wee People is now under the ownership of Missy Rice and Diana Marino. Missy is an Occupational Therapist (and also owner of “Breaking Boundaries”) who provides support services for children birth - 5 in Wayne County. Her background in OT will be extremely advantageous to our program. She will be able to share her knowledge in her area of expertise with our teachers and students. This will only make our curriculum even more beneficial to your child.

Diana has 20 years of experience working with preschoolers. She is the previous owner of American Gymnastic/Gym-Care Nursery School in Bedford Hills, NY. She ran classes for children from the age of 2 - school age. Her experience will be extremely helpful in overseeing Wee People. Initially both of their roles at Wee People will be in the supervisory capacity. In the future, there may be a new class, summer program or parent workshop they might facilitate. 

Amy Dana will again be teaching all 3 classes – 3’s, 4yr/UPK. This will be Amy’s 12th year working at Wee People. She has a BS in Early and Elementary Education from Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania. At the present time, Amy is working on her Masters. Prior to working at Wee People, she taught Pre-K at Nazareth Hall for 2 years, was a substitute teacher for the RCSD, private tutor for students in kindergarten through 2nd grade along with substituting for 1 1/2 years for the Wayne Central School District.  

We will provide repeated opportunities for your child to discover and explore his/her environment, to develop socialization skills and to be challenged academically. The children will be exposed to a wide variety of hands-on and developmentally appropriate experiences. These experiences will be interrelated with various topics and themes which will be covered throughout the year. Continuity and consistency are an important part of our curriculum. Our program has been coordinated with the area kindergartens in an effort to make the transition from nursery school to kindergarten successful.

Class size will be limited to allow us to develop an individualized program to foster positive relationships with peers and provide many opportunities for interaction between the teachers and children.  Each class is staffed by both a teacher and up to 2 instructional assistants.

An important part of our program is parental involvement. We encourage your participation both in the classroom and through such special events as field trips, Christmas Programs, Mother’s Day Party and the end of the year graduation/picnic.
