"I adore this little school and believe there is a great need for us in the community," said Tracey Beisel of The Ojai Valley Community Nursery School.

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros released their second album entitled Here on May 29th via Community Music. Relix Magazine hailed it as "an album full of undeniable folk-rock hooks, gospel overtones, infectious lyrics, orchestral swells and a whole lot of love," and Entertainment Weekly praised the album and its "lovely troubadour melodies."  The group recently wrapped a nearly sold-out spring tour in the U.S. and is prepping to head overseas for Euopean dates prior to returning to the U.S. for their September live dates.





ABOUT OJAI VALLEY COMMUNITY NURSERY SCHOOL 
The Ojai Valley Community Nursery School was founded in 1955 and is the only parent owned and operated nursery school in Ojai. Parents and teachers work together to nurture each child towards independence, develop a love of learning, and a respect for others and the environment. The school prides itself on a gentle separation philosophy and strives to be a home away from home. Children take their shoes off and dig rivers in the sandbox, lie down on the carpet while reading, serve themselves a snack when they are hungry, and get to know the parent assistants as family. A Montessori philosophy is utilized in the classroom to develop each child's individual learning potential through art and imagination.
