Play, learn and grow...together!

All activities include (as a goal) the development of self-esteem and mutual respect.

The UCC Nursery School is a private pre-school that has been serving families of the greater Liverpool community since 1965! The school is sponsored by the United Church of Christ in Bayberry and is nonsectarian and open to all. The Church Council employs a professional director. Together they carry out the planning and administration of the school.

Registration begins on January 1, 2019 for families currently enrolled in our program. Open enrollment for the public begins February 1, 2019.

about our program

Our Pre-School programs provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of each child. This is accomplished through a variety of activities and experiences appropriate to each child's developmental stage. We offer this high quality program by investing in a staff of dedicated and experienced teachers. Our staff is caring and compassionate, filled with excitement and vision, helping young children thrive in a classroom setting!

Learning takes place as children touch, manipulate, and experiment with a variety of materials and interact with teachers and classmates. Creative expression is encouraged with emphasis placed on the process, not necessarily the product. All activities include (as a goal) the development of self-esteem and mutual respect.

Field trips and classroom visitors expand the children's knowledge of their world. A snack is provided by the parents each school day, and children are sometimes encouraged to help with preparation of the snack.

An outdoor, fenced-in play area with play equipment is provided. The playground was renovated in 1998 and is accessible to those with special needs. The wooded area behind the church is used for nature walks and gardening. Outdoor activities are planned daily, weather permitting.

‍The Preschool Special Education Department of the Liverpool School District and "Hear 2 Learn" are both available to the UCC Nursery School staff for any children requiring extra support and services. Hear 2 Learn provides a full support staff in our building each year. Together, we strive to give all children a successful start in their educational career.

The classroom area for the four-year-old program was designed specifically for the Nursery School in 1975. It is comprised of a group of learning centers which provide an effective system of supervision with freedom. It is well lit and cheerful. Kitchen and restroom facilities are located adjacent to the classroom.
