About the Provider

Description: At the Millburn Cooperative Nursery School, parents have the opportunity to participate in their child's first school experience. Founded in 1974, the school is a unique, non-profit preschool located in a one-room schoolhouse on the edge of Taylor Park. Teachers and parents work together to provide a secure, relaxed atmosphere. In our two-year program, children learn through play, in an atmosphere that is warm and supportive. We offer stimulating and varied activities designed to help each child grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, and socially at his or her own pace.

Using a humanistic approach, the staff draws from eclectic sources. The program incorporates the concepts of, (among others) Adler, Piaget and Montessori, with a strong emphasis on socialization and independence. Our fully accredited teachers stimulate learning by inspiring a child's spontaneous curiosity. Activities flow naturally as ideas are explored through books, puzzles, music, dance, manipulatives, as well as reading readiness, math, and cognitive materials. Instilling a love of the environment and all living things is also integral to our curriculum. We search for the first robin, dig for earthworms, catch snowflakes, care for pets, study habitats, and celebrate the change of seasons.

By the conclusion of our two-year program, children have acquired the skills necessary for a successful transition to Kindergarten.
