Now Accepting Enrollment for Fall 2022!

At this time New Covenant Nursery School is planning to offer a traditional in-person learning experience to our students for the 2022-23 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. At this time we have two classrooms that are limited to 10-12 students each.

If there is room in the class, we do accept students  on a rolling basis throughout the year, please contact us for more information.

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. Tammy, and Teacher Ms. Annie Classroom Aides Ms. Paula, 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 curriculum also includes a “New-trition” program, designed by former NCNS teacher & nutrition education consultant Jillian Ludwig, that teaches children about making healthy food choices and provides healthy 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’ and in 2021 we added another classroom!
