Christ Church Nursery School


Christ Church in Short Hills is committed to guiding children through faith, academics, social and emotional health. At Christ Church Nursery School, children embrace a love of learning with curiosity, enthusiasm and confidence! Children at the Nursery School participate in monthly chapel, art and Bible storytelling with our priests. They also say simple prayers with their teachers daily. Christ Church Nursery School, while grounded in the foundation of The Episcopal Church, welcomes all children of all faiths.

Christ Church Nursery School, established in 1962, is licensed by the state of New Jersey. The highly regarded pre-school serves over 200 children from ages 2 through 6 throughout the school year, as well as a six week summer program. The school also offers a Drop-In Center for infants and children from six months to age 5. The Drop-In Center is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., operating on a flexible schedule based on parents’ child care needs. Christ Church Nursery School enjoys membership support from the National Association of Episcopal Schools, following the curriculum guidelines set forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
