Our Preschool teacher is New York State Certified. All of our teachers have many years of experience in both early childhood and public school programs. Their training and experience as parents gives them valuable perspectives to bring to the classroom. They are dedicated to providing a secure and exciting first school experience.

Family Participation

Family Nursery School's cooperative program schedules parents to assist the teacher on a rotating basis (usually about once a month). This shared experience gives you an active role in your child's education and a unique perspective on your child's development. 


The Family Nursery School was established over 50 years ago and the emphasis continues to be one of including the whole family in their child's school experience.  We work hand in hand, teacher and parent, to provide each child with confidence, self-discipline, academic skills and a lasting joy of learning.

Our Philosophy

The Family Nursery School program has been designed to provide an atmosphere that encourages each child's growth socially, emotionally and academically. 


Our Toddler Program for 2-year-olds offers a positive first school experience, with activities to challenge their developmental needs.  A new theme will be introduced monthly with colors, shapes, animals and more.  


Our Primary Class for 3-year-olds focus on gentle introduction to the school environment, developing independence, and nurturing your child's natural curiosity for learning.


The Pre-K Class for 4 & 5-year-olds is designed to prepare the child for Kindergarten.  This includes opportunities for creative play and cognitive development.
