For over 50 years the North Shore Nursery School has offered young children a nurturing and engaging first school experience. Located in quaint, seaside Beverly Farms MA, NSNS's schoolhouse was designed to enhance young children's learning experiences; it is bright and spacious with well-designed play areas to foster exploration, imagination and discovery. The curriculum is play-based, and blends thematic and emergent approaches. There is an emphasis on outdoor experiences on both the playground and conservation trails abutting the school grounds. Diverse enrichment programming including Spanish, Music and Movement complements the classroom curriculum and a very low student to teacher ratio allows faculty to truly know the children. There are 9 experienced and highly-qualified faculty serving 48 children from 2 to 5 years of age. A Business Manager and Director of Enrollment work closely with the Director to support administrative tasks. This unique, close knit community of involved parents, dedicated faculty and joyful children enjoys an excellent reputation in the area.
