General School Mission

"Recognizing the importance of the early years in a child's development, the Session has operated Covenant Nursery School as part of its ministry to families since 1964. Our nationally accredited early childhood program seeks to provide a Christian learning environment and curriculum that encourage a desire to learn as well as opportunities which foster growth in the skills and apitudes of each individual child. Tuition assistance is available and based on need.
Covenant Nursery School serves children from 18 months to 5 years of age. Our half-day program offers options from 1 to 5 days a week during the months of September to May. A theme-based curriculum offers a variety of topics each year. Developmentally appropriate activities encourage children to discover and learn as they participate in 'hands-on' learning experiences.
Volunteers are an important part of our nursery school program. Parents, grandparents, and church members can be found working with our children in different activities. These activities include cooking, music, art, dramatic play, wood structures, snack, reading, sewing, sign language, community visits, and many more events.
