Northfield Nursery School is a non-profit, family-involved preschool that offers part-day classes for children. We help children develop socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively for future educational endeavors. We believe that a child’s family is their first teacher and we strive to involve them in their child’s preschool experience.

Our classes take place in two adjoining rooms with groups of 10 students or less and one teacher per room.  This gives children the opportunity to interact with both the small group in their classroom and, if they wish, the additional  students in the adjacent class.  Our Tuesday/Thursday class also has an additional teacher who moves between the classes to provide extra help.

We believe in the importance of learning and growing as educators as well and are constantly striving to enhance the qulaity of our school.  We are a member of the Minnesota Association for the Education of Young Children because we believe in the power of collaboration to help us achieve our goals.
