Two Program Choices for Fall 2020!

New Covenant Nursery School is proud and excited to announce two preschool programs being offered this fall! Our staff has been hard at work planning programs that meet 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.

Families can opt for either a traditional in-person experience featuring our unique individualized program, now with additional health and safety protocols due to COVID-19. Or, families can opt for a distance learning experience featuring a carefully curated online classroom specifically created for New Covenant students, an optional weekly Zoom meeting, and weekly postal mailings.  Click here to read all about these two wonderful one-of-a-kind opportunities!

We will accept students throughout the year, capped at 10 per classroom for safety reasons

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 and Assistant Teacher Ms. Tammy, our mixed age group enjoys 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 and current nutrition education consultant Miss Jill, 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’!
