Union Congregational Weekday Nursery School provides a high quality early childhood education inspired by the Reggio-Emilia approach. This approach is rooted in support of a child’s strong self image. It is founded on the belief that early childhood learning revolves around a symbiosis of parent, teacher, and child.
Union Congregational Nursery School is located in Montclair, New Jersey and was started in 1968 by parents of Union Congregational Church as a weekday preschool. It has evolved since then, growing tenfold and now includes more than 130 families from a wide range of cultural backgrounds. Our Reggio-inspired curriculum encourages families to share their family traditions as an authentic way for children to learn about others.
