"Let Them Be Little"

About Us

Our Story


Welcome to Nurture Neighborhood! We are a state licensed home-based preschool and daycare center offering experienced child care. Our in-home daycare is operated by myself, Cynthia Simmons and two other fantastic women. I am a retired nurse of over forty years, a mother of three children, and a grandmother of five. I offer more than fifty years of child care experience to our team. My two assistants are in their early twenties and bring a youthful and exciting flare to our wonderful classroom. We specialize in safety, cleanliness, medical conditions, special education, early reading, behavior, and socialization. All three of us women have extensive experience with early learning including speech, fine motor, gross motor, sensory integration and social/emotional development. We are educated and experienced with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Epilepsy, developmental and educational delays and we are well-versed in expected childhood milestones. We are dedicated to shaping your child's day into an experience that exceeds yours and their expectations.  

Our Location


Our classroom is located in a private residence in the Taylor Spring Town Home Subdivision in Harrisonburg, VA right off of Interstate 81 and just blocks from JMU, James Madison University and Sentara Rockingham Memorial Hospital. Our classroom occupies and entire floor of our residential home and flows out onto a large playground in our quiet back yard. Due to our convenient location, we can provide daycare for families in Harrisonburg, Elkton, Broadway, Timberville, Fort Defiance, Dayton, Bridgewater, Penn Laird, Grottoes, Weyers Cave, Mount Crawford and Mcgayhesville, VA. These locations are within fifteen minutes of our day care centers. 

Our Purpose


Nurture Neighborhood offers affordable child care for children with all levels of abilities including children who need help with potty training and other basic daily needs. We offer a fair rate schedule and strive to help families by providing all meals. Safe child care is absolutely paramount here at Nurture Neighborhood. We have many policies in place to ensure a safe environment and we consider ourselves top-of-the-line germ-fighters! Nutrition is also a big focus for us too. All meals are USDA approved. All food is carefully selected to ensure our meal plan is full of variety.  Our mission is to provide a home away from home for all children in our community and "Let them be little" at the same time as preparing them for Kindergarten and the many wonderful years of learning and growing that await them in their bright futures!
