The Nursery School is an educational outreach ministry of St. John’s United Church of Christ and does model Christian values and tolerance.  Although simple prayers will be shared, the program is not intended to be a religious educational program.  Parents desiring formal religious education for their children are encouraged to explore Sunday church school programs.

overview

The purpose of St. John’s Nursery School is to provide an organized learning environment in which children will grow and learn physically, socially and mentally.  We believe it is appropriate to teach young children by example.  To this end, we provide a loving atmosphere which promotes sharing and caring for others.

St. John’s Nursery School is a private nursery school that offers a wide selection of classes to meet the needs of children 2 years through 5 years of age.  Two-year-old classes are limited to 9 children.  Families of three to five year olds may select from a two-day program which meets on Tuesday and Thursday or a three-day program which meets on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Four and five year olds also may choose a five-day program which meets Monday through Friday.  Class size is limited to 12-16 children, depending upon the classroom.  Each class is staffed by a teacher and an assistant.
