WHAT IS BOOK NOOK?

Inspiring Little Minds Through the Wonder of Words

Book Nook is a unique early childhood literacy center where children develop a lifelong love of reading, books and the wonder of words. Founded by a teacher and mom with 20-years of experience in early childhood, literacy and elementary education, our curriculum is designed to meet the needs and learning styles of each child. But we don’t stop there. We’ve created light-filled, warm learning environments specifically designed to stimulate your child’s curiosity and imagination. Children feel right at home when they walk into Book Nook and are eager to explore our well stocked shelves of wall-to-wall books.
