    Now in the second year of its latest and reimagined form, the Austen Riggs Nursery School continues to be a lively, vibrant space for preschoolers to learn, explore and grow, developing a strong foundation that will carry them into kindergarten. Likewise, it is a space where patients at the Austen Riggs Center work as interns and aides, experiencing childhood through the lens of the nearly three year-old to six year-olds who attend the Nursery School.

    The recent addition of Kim Hunter-Schaedle, PhD, as Manager of Institutional Research at Riggs has brought a palpable energy to the research department. To say Dr. Hunter-Schaedle is qualified for this position and its challenges would be a gross understatement. Her diverse and extensive background in research, administration, strategic plan development, discovery and clinical trial implementation as well as science writing makes her a tremendous addition to both the research department and the Riggs community as a whole.
