As a nonprofit nursery school and the largest program of the United
Presbyterian Church of Flanders, Fun 'n' Friends Nursery School meets a
critical need in our local community by offering the highest quality early
childhood education at an affordable price.
The Fun 'n' Friends Nursery School program was founded in 1980 as a play
group to meet the needs of members and friends of the United Presbyterian
Church of Flanders. At that time, only 12 children were enrolled. By the
spring of 1985, the nursery school was certified by the State of New
Jersey. The program has since grown to more than 100 children.
The Fun 'n' Friends Nursery School staff is composed of a Director,
Head Teacher and eleven highly qualified, caring teachers and assistant
teachers. All staff members are certified in CPR and First Aid and
participate in annual training, as mandated by the State of New Jersey. All
staff members are subject to a CARI fingerprint background check by the
State of New Jersey and CHRI live scan electronic fingerprinting by the
Bureau of Licensing. This well-qualified administrative and teaching staff is
overseen by a Board of Trustees.
What a child learns in preschool greatly influences and enhances their
overall educational experience and plays a critical role in their future
academic success. The Fun 'n' Friends Nursery School program of the
United Presbyterian Church of Flanders is a high quality preschool program
for children 2 ½ through 5 years old. We offer three, four and five day
sessions designed to teach basic preschool fundamentals through an
intellectually rich, engaging, and fun-filled curriculum in a structured
learning environment. Emphasis is placed on the development of a positive
self- image, healthy peer socialization skills, and an awareness of God’s
world, in a warm and caring atmosphere.
