St. Stephen's Nursery School

Expanding the Mind. Nurturing the Spirit. Celebrating the Child. Est.1969.



Our Fours Program prepares children for Kindergarten and also fosters children's creativity, kindness, and respect for themselves and others.  Our program focuses on the whole child, academically, socially, and emotionally, to help give children the confidence and skills to enter Kindergarten feeling ready to learn and grow. The school day incorporates circle time, free play, stories, art, music, movement, science & nature, and developmentally appropriate math and language concepts. Our caring and professional teachers love children, and it is our policy to exceed the state requirements for staff/child ratios in our Fours Class.


Special programs include Music, classroom visits from Woodcock Nature Center and other community helpers, and field trips to New Pond Farm, the Hickories, and the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum.
