The First Day of School is Almost Here!

We’re excited because the first day of preschool for the 2017-18 school year is approaching!

We look forward to seeing you at your child’s Orientation:
Tuesday, Sept. 5th 9:30-11:00 a.m. (T/TH AM class)
Wednesday, Sept. 6th 9:30-11:00 a.m. (M/W/F AM class)
Wednesday, Sept. 6th 1:00-2:30 p.m. (M/W/F PM class)

Whether your family is new to NNS or returning alumni, orientation is strongly encouraged for parents and their enrolled child. We request that each family send at least one adult- either parent or responsible guardian- to attend the full orientation. Because this is a special time for you and your child, we request that you do not bring siblings.

Orientation is held at Northfield Nursery School located at the United Methodist Church, 1401 South Maple Street, Northfield, MN. During the first 30 minutes of orientation, parents and children have an informal time to play, explore, and meet their teachers and classmates.

Following the first 30-minute session, parents will gather in a nearby room for an informational meeting. Our priority is that your child feels safe and happy on his/her first day in the classroom. If your child needs you in the classroom, please feel free to stay as long as necessary. NNS Director, Kathy Lansing, will provide all the necessary information to you at another time.
