2023-2024 ENROLLMENT

Thank you for your interest in First Congregational Church Nursery School.  2023-2024 enrollment is currently open.

First Congregational Church Nursery School is an inclusive school and though priority is given to the children of our current church members and siblings of existing students, we welcome many new families to our community each year. Once a child is accepted into our school, they are guaranteed a spot for the duration of their preschool education. The First Congregational Church Nursery School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national or ethnic origin and family configuration.

FCCNS offers a limited amount of need-based scholarship for tuition.  Aid is awarded on a yearly basis and therefore must be reapplied for each year. Please contact Krista Guarini for more information.
