What's Happening at SNS

Suburban Nursery School is not just a school, but a community. A community of children, a community of parents, of families and staff. Established in 1958, our school is known for a nurturing, play-based environment for 2-5 year olds where parents contribute to the overall wellbeing of our school. Many of our staff members have been a part of the school for decades and have children who once attended SNS. It’s a place that stays with you long after your child has graduated! Our staff is also continually searching to learn new ways to help our students think divergently, grow socially and emotionally, and feel supported. We believe in the power of being outdoors and have an unbeatable outdoor space. Explore the website for more information, and please come visit!
