Founded in 1955, Merrick Community Nursery School is a unique Non-Profit Cooperative for Pre-Schoolers ages 2 to 5 years old. We admit students of any race, color or national origin from Merrick, Bellmore and surrounding communities. Programs include Pre-School, Extended Stay, Parent & Me and Summer Day Camp.
We are a traditional cooperative nursery school that understands today's world and the two-parent working household. Full family involvement is encouraged in each of our programs and we offer a variety of participation levels. Located on a tree-lined residential neighborhood we provide an amazing outdoor space and one-room school house setting.
The educational program at Merrick Community Nursery School is based on the foundation of learning through play and our the techniques we use release the imagination of our children. Our curriculum is designed to exercise fine motor skills while enhancing competency, creativity and self-esteem. Using traditional and non-traditional approaches, we enable children to learn with all of their senses. Our graduates are prepared for the challenges of kindergarten both academically and socially.
