Nursery School of the Nyacks Now Enrolling for 2017- 2018 School Year

Nursery School of the Nyacks (NSN) is a cooperative nursery school rooted in the Bank Street College philosophy of childhood education. They offer morning preschool classes for children ages 2 – 4.

Nursery School of the Nyacks began through the cooperative efforts of local parents who felt the need for an additional choice of nursery schools in the community, a school that would pay close attention to each child's individual developmental needs and progress. As a parent-developed and -operated school, families are integrally involved in all aspects of the school's functioning. NSN promotes an environment where children are encouraged to bring their imaginations, enthusiasm for discovery and excitement for learning.

Within a safe and nurturing co-op environment, the children learn through play. They try out roles, act out ‘whatifs’, express ideas, try out solutions to problems and simply imagine. The parents get to participate in their children's learning experience first-hand, while becoming part of, and learning from, a supportive community of involved parents and the professional, experienced teaching staff.

Their classes are quickly filling up. Call today to schedule a tour and meet the teachers.

They also have a few spaces left in their NSN Summer Play program which runs for 7 weeks from July 11 – August 24. Summer Play is a half-day morning camp offered Tuesday through Thursday weekly. Campers will enjoy water play, arts and crafts, friendship and fun.

Location: 130 First Avenue, Nyack. For information about preschool classes or Summer Play, call 348-3268 or visit
