Our Parents Make A Difference

Parents of Ladue Chapel Nursery School play a very important role in this first school experience by preparing a child for separation from home, and accepting their growing independence. Our parents maintain a close personal tie between home and school. Parents are encouraged to visit often and participate in school activities. We have two or three room ambassadors in each room to help with parties. Parent-Teacher conversations are scheduled twice a year. Our teachers share each child's development in detail with parents, a semi-monthly newsletter to help keep school and home in close touch.

Board of Directors

The Board of Ladue Chapel Nursery School is made up of a group of dedicated parent volunteers.They govern and help direct the nursery school by setting policies, fundraising, facilitating community spirit within the school and shaping the school's direction. Monthly meetings are planned.


Ladue Chapel Nursery School is a not for profit nursery school. We rely on the fundraising efforts of our board to compliment our school budget for educational purchases and facility improvements. The generosity of our parents has allowed us to purchase educational materials and equipment that enrich our classrooms. A past large fundraising goal was a capital campaign to update and improve our school inside and out!
