We believe that young children learn best through play, exploration, and imitation.
Our approach to education meets students with a balance of activities that challenge their emerging skills and capacities. Our home-like classrooms provide opportunity for self-directed, open-ended play with natural materials.
Our students develop fine motor skills through the arts and cooking, nurture age-appropriate pre-literacy skills through song, story, and circle games and, develop a connection to the world around them through daily experiences outdoors, hiking, gardening, or visiting the animals at the farm.
These are the seeds for a lifelong love of learning, and they provide the foundation that every young child needs for self-confidence, resilience, and future academic excellence.
Nursery School of the Nyacks is a parent-run Cooperative Nursery School rooted in the Bank Street College Philosophy of Early Childhood Education. Within a safe and nurturing co-op environment, our children learn through creative play. They try out roles, act out “what-ifs”, express ideas, develop solutions to problems, and simply imagine. NSN promotes an environment where children are encouraged to bring their imaginations, enthusiasm for discovery, and excitement for learning.
As a parent-developed and -operated school, families are integrally involved in all aspects of the school’s functioning. Our parents get to participate in their children’s learning experiences first-hand, while becoming part of, and learning from, a supportive community of parents and teachers.
NSN is a not-for-profit organization that is inclusive and non-sectarian. Enrollment is open to all children regardless of race or religion. Tuition is competitive and financial aid may be available.

Diane Kayser, Director
At Tall Pines Nursery School we believe that every child is an individual. With that in mind we maintain a warm, caring environment in which the individual needs of each child are met. We are staffed with knowledgeable, experienced teachers and aides who are dedicated to helping children develop in all skill areas. We encourage a child’s natural curiosity and desires to learn and together we will explore, discover and grow. We strive to make preschool a positive experience not only for the child butfor the parents as well.
Our developmentally appropriate programs encourage learning through the use of various manipulatives. Children play, investigate, question and discover. Each project a child works on is completed with his or her own hands and creativity.
We maintain an “open-door” policy. Parents are welcome to participate in programs such as our Parent/Guest Reader Program. Tall Pines is NOT a Cooperative Preschool. Mandatory parent participation is not required.
Our Goals Are:
- To help children develop to their full potential in all skill areas while fostering a care for others.
- Our philosophy focuses on the belief that children feel secure and develop greater self-esteem in a structured environment.
- Our curriculum aims to develop social; fine and gross motor; language; cognitive and self-help skills through enjoyable activities in a relaxed atmosphere.
- Our developmentally appropriate programs encourage learning through the use of various manipulatives. Children play, investigate, question, and discover. Each project a child works on is completed with his or her own hands (and creativity).
Our philosophy is to provide a loving and nurturing environment where children can grow and develop as individuals by giving them a strong foundation that will help them transition to the larger school environment. This is done by introducing developmentally appropriate activities that nurture their individual strengths and interests. Working together with the children, teachers and parents is one of the reasons for our strong success. It has also lead us to being named by The Pearl River Patch online newspaper, as “The Best Nursery School in Pearl River.”
