About Us

Memorial Day Nursery

Strong Foundation for the Future

Memorial Day Nursery School is the oldest Preschool in the State of New Jersey. It was founded in 1887 and has been in continuous service to Paterson's children for 133 years. For over a decade, we have been a Nationally Accredited Program, The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

NAEYC Accreditation ensures that programs are safe, well prepared, and intentional about ensuring children's success.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of children and their families. We strive to provide a nurturing environment that will help your children grow physically, emotionally, socially, and cognitively.

What We Offer

We offer a specially designed curriculum to help develop children's skills so that they can compete in this ever-changing world. We place special emphasis on teaching our children what we call the three R-s:

  • Respect for themselves and toward others

  • Recognition of their unique talents and abilities

  • Realization of the expanding world around them
