A brief study of the Nursery Schools presents a picture to me of vital importance and is an important project in the United States.

In 1924 there were twenty eight Nursery Schools in eleven states, while four years later, eighty five Nursery Schools were found in the District of Columbia alone. At the present time six hundred Nursery Schools are distributed throughout the United States.

The Nursery School acts as a supplication to the home in helping many of the million parents to understand their children from a physical, social, and mental viewpoint, in such a way as the parents might cooperate closer with the Nursery School.

The child is developed through re-search environment, experimentation, home background, histories; current records from this cumulative factual material is obtained to guide the teachers in adjusting and determining the work with individual children and perfecting a Nursery School program.
