Founded in 1890, St. Michael's Day Nursery is one of the oldest early childhood education programs in Delaware. Originally located on Washington St., the school offered working class parents childcare at a time when it was typically unavailable to them. In 1899 the General Assembly designated the school a guardian of young children under the jurisdiction of the Delaware Orphan's Court. The school provided care, education, shelter and adoption services for children regardless of nationality or religious affiliation. In 1908 the school moved to this location. By 1960 the school taught children from birth to age eight, continuing their legacy of education.
