Thank you for your interest in First Congregational Church Nursery School. We are 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.  

2022-2023 priority enrollment for current families and siblings will begin on December 8, 2021 with a submission deadline of January 5, 2022.


We encourage all prospective families to tour the school with our Director, Krista Guarini, to learn more about our programs and admission process prior to submitting an application.  Please click the link at the bottom of this page to sign up.  Tours will be available on the following schedule:
