The Northfield Mount Hermon Campus Nursery School provides quality early childhood care for the children of parents working at Northfield Mount Hermon and in the surrounding community. We provide a nurturing environment that is rich in experiences designed to encourage independence and support the development of a positive sense of self.
Our goal is to help children develop at their own pace while learning age-appropriate skills. We recognize and respect the unique qualities, abilities, and potential of each child. We provide a stimulating educational and social environment where children feel confident and secure. We are committed to supporting all aspects of children’s growth in an atmosphere of respect.
In both our preschool and infant/toddler classrooms, we offer a developmentally-based program, rich in dramatic play, sensory experiences, and carefully selected and varied learning materials. Our days include free play and exploration as well as teacher-directed activities in art, science, cooking, music, and movement. Our natural setting provides opportunities for developing children’s connection and fascination with the outdoors.
Our well-trained, dedicated staff members provide consistency and structure, adhere to the NAEYC code of ethics, and participate in ongoing professional development and training. Some program highlights:
- Flexible scheduling within the school day: 7:30 am–4:45pm
- Accommodation for children 12 weeks through 5 years of age
- Program begins in late August and ends in early June
- Optional summer program
