Nursery School and Kindergarten

The Westfield Presbyterian Nursery School and Kindergarten offers young children a loving, caring environment where they may discover the world around them through PLAY, investigation, and inquisitive thought in our preschool and kindergarten programs.  Preschool children are engaged in hands-on learning experiences with a NJ certified Early Childhood teacher with BA or Masters and assistant teacher in each of our classes.  Kindergarteners attend a full-day program with 2 NJ certified full-time teachers in each of our three classes,  most with Master Degrees, providing an active learning environment while meeting all of NJ standards.

The children are encouraged to:

  • Develop a positive self image
  • Develop confidence in themselves and their decisions
  • Develop social skills and positive relationships with others
  • Develop and implement critical thinking skills
