Support Our School

Please make a gift to The First Presbyterian Church Nursery School Annual Fund.

We are excited to launch our 2017-18 Annual Fund campaign, Keeping FPCNS in First Place!

The Annual Fund plays a critical role in ensuring the quality education that places FPCNS among the top-ranked nursery school options for NYC families. Annual Fund donations allow us to strengthen the quality of our school programs and support capital improvements. They are an important way families, alumni and friends can support the school and directly impact the daily experience of our children.  

Our Annual Fund has made the following improvements possible:
  • A newly designed art studio space, a renovated library and kitchen area, a teacher’s work station, and renovated classroom bathrooms
  • Continued funding for Project APPLE, providing our children healthy snacks and rooftop and classroom gardening projects
  • Ensuring at least 3 teachers in every classroom and additional funding for our specialists
  • Professional development opportunities for our teachers
  • In early 2018, the launch of new branding for our school including a new logo and a redesigned website
What’s in store for this year? 

Important technology upgrades will be a major focus of the Annual Fund. These upgrades will ensure improved communication with prospective, current and alumni families through digital displays and social media. We are also digitizing student portfolios and enhancing project documentation. For our teachers to do this important work, we would like to convert school computers to Macs this year. This conversion will significantly streamline our ability to present and share the exciting work being done in our classrooms.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution online or by dropping off a check at the Nursery School.

We thank you in advance for your support!
Parent Participation

We welcome and encourage the participation and feedback of FPCNS parents. Parents help us to enrich everyone’s experience at school, and to build a vibrant, inclusive and cooperative community.  

There are many opportunities to participate at FPCNS that suit parents’ interests and availability, during the school day or during evening hours. Through participation, parents are able to meet families across all classrooms in our school. By spending time at school, parents are able to see first-hand how our school operates throughout the day, and their children in action! At the same time, children understand the importance of school when they see their parents donating their energy and time at FPCNS. 

Opportunities are wide-ranging and evolving every school year. Parents help us to broaden curriculum topics and research. They help us in fundraising efforts that support our scholarship fund, as well as in charity drives. Parents help us host our admissions open houses and school tours. As chaperones, they make it possible for us to go on field trips. Parents share family traditions with their classes, celebrate children’s birthdays, or by spending time in their classrooms to read, cook, bake, play an instrument, etc.
