SHORT HILLS, NJ - Christ Church Nursery School enjoyed a visit from the Millburn Fire Department on Monday. 

Battalion Chief Jim Boyle and Firefighter Frank Rios arrived on their fire truck to talk with each preschool class about fire safety and what to expect if firefighters ever have to come help the children. 

The firefighters showed the children what they looked like in their full gear, demonstrated how they crawl across the floor and even practiced finding children who might need help.  To the children’s joy, the firefighters ended their visit by having the children explore the fire truck.  This outreach from the fire department is a highlight of the CCNS school year and is a much appreciated educational program.

Christ Church Nursery School was established in 1962; since then we have played an active role in the education of young children. The school is sponsored by Christ Church in Short Hills and welcomes children of parishioners as well as children of Short Hills and neighboring communities.

We believe that children are eager to learn and they learn best through exploration and appropriate hands-on learning experiences. We offer a wide variety of activities that contribute to the physical, social, emotional, cognitive and communicative development of the child. Our days are busy as we learn about ourselves and the world around us.

State licensed, the school serves over 200 children, offering spacious classrooms and four fenced-in outdoor play areas.

Our challenging curriculum follows the Preschool Teaching and Learning Standards set by the New Jersey State Department of Education. Our goal is to meet, and when possible, exceed those standards.
