Now Accepting Enrollment for Fall 2021!

Enrollment is rolling throughout the year, you can start at any time. At this time New Covenant Nursery School is planning to offer a traditional in-person learning experience to our students for the 2021-22 school year. Our staff is dedicated to meeting a young child’s need for individual attention and community connection in their early educational experiences, while still providing for their personal health and safety. Classes are limited to 10-12 students.

Given the unique public health circumstances, there may be a continuation of several health and safety practices instituted for the 2021-22 school year. Individual tours are available during non-class times.  Please email to request a tour or more information. 

You can also watch a virtual tour of our space here (on our Facebook page) or here.

About New Covenant:

New Covenant Nursery School is a play-based, part-time program admitting 2, 3 & 4 year olds at all stages of bathroom readiness. Led by Head Teacher Ms. Liz, Teacher Ms. Tammy, and Classroom Aides Ms. Annie and Ms. Rita, our two mixed age groups enjoy a varied and engaging curriculum including shapes, colors, letter of the week, story time, gym, music, arts & crafts, SEFCU school banking program and experiential field trips. Our innovative and unique “New-trition” program, designed by former NCNS teacher & nutrition education consultant Jillian Ludwig, teaches children about making healthy food choices and provides nutritious snacks each school day. The nutrition curriculum, classroom lesson plans and daily story selections correspond and complement one another to create a rich, layered learning experience. New Covenant Nursery School has been in operation for over 45 years, but we are always learning and growing ourselves- in 2016 the CDCCC (now Brightside Up) presented our school with the award for ‘Best New Updated Program’!
