What makes us unique?

Founded in 1972, Portland Nursery School (PNS) is a non-profit, state licensed, parent-led cooperative preschool, which affords participating parents the opportunity to be intimately engaged in the education of their children. Preschool is a time of tremendous learning and growth and PNS offers a safe, nurturing, and enriching environment in which children are able to develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.

About our Cooperative Model

Our co-op structure allows parents and families to be actively involved in their child’s early educational experience. Parents serve on our board of directors, help in the classroom, assist with fundraising, and are deeply invested in the school’s programming and success. All this while working alongside a deeply vested and highly educated teacher, our own Ms. Elizabeth!

Our Enriching Curriculum

  • Our engaging, play-based curriculum continually adapts to meet our students’ unique interests, skills, and needs.
  • Master’s level teacher who continually participates in professional development to ensure your child’s development, success and self esteem.
  • Children master key learning objectives during their time at Portland Nursery School, through play, self-directed and guided exploration.
  • Variety of learning stations such as areas for gross motor development, dramatic play, art, science and math exploration, and quiet reading.
  • Builds a foundation of home-school connection. Children enjoy their parents presence in the classroom!
