Learning Through Play and Discovery!

Founded in 1945, our nursery school in Toms River, NJ has served families for 78 years. We’re a non-profit parent cooperative, owned by currently-enrolled parents and students. We encourage active parental involvement through classroom visits, event participation, and project engagement.

General Public Registration will begin on Monday, February 5, 2024

Availability in all these programs are very limited, Pre-kindergarten specifically. Please stop by to register. Spaces will be given on a first-come-first-serve basis. We are so excited to be getting ready for another year of fun and learning at TRNS! If you would like to schedule a tour or simply get more information we are here to help as well!

Our Mission

As a teacher, one must invite curiosity, encourage creativity, and inspire ideas. The teacher must set a stage that stimulates the need to ask questions and seek solutions while allowing the child freedom to develop his or her own style of “work-play.”

Independence is encouraged with the clear understanding that it carries with it a social responsibility. Finally, the teacher stimulates and inculcates in the child a feeling for aesthetic and moral values by her own enthusiasm and attitudes.

Our Programs

Toms River Nursery School offers toddler, nursery, pre-kindergarten, and kindergarten programs that encourage learning through play and discovery. Our goal is to educate each child in a happy and healthy atmosphere that offers learning experiences that will stimulate each child’s curiosity, and develop an excitement for learning.

Registration and Tuition

General Registration is open to the public as of February 5, 2024 for the 2024 – 2025 school year, with online registration beginning February 6th at 9:30am.
