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. Nursery School of the Nyacks (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, our children learn through play. They try out roles, act out "what-ifs," express ideas, try out solutions to problems, and simply imagine. Our 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.

NSN is a not-for-profit organization that is inclusive and non-sectarian. Enrollment is open to all children regardless of race or religion. Tuition is competitive and financial aid may be available.

Toilet Training

At NSN, we understand that toilet training is a process, not an event. Our children are at different stages in this process. Your child is welcome to wear diapers or pull ups to school. The preschool has a child-equipped toilet, and the teachers are always available to remind the children and help those who need it. We also have changes of clothing when needed.
