Payson Park Nursery School

Payson Park Nursery School (PPNS) is a nonsectarian, non-profit pre-school located on the first floor of Payson Park Church. PPNS has served Belmont and the surrounding communities for over 25 years.

Under the supervision of an experienced and qualified staff, the children at PPNS are encouraged to grow socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically in a balanced pre-school program that offers a comfortable transition from home to school.

A loving and stimulating learning environment is provided for the children at PPNS. They experience many areas of development. Free-play gives children an opportunity to socialize. Story time enriches listening skills. Music time gives children a sense of rhythm and an appreciation of songs. Activity time teaches children to follow and apply directions in a class setting. Large motor skills are developed through playtime either outside or in our indoor gymnasium.

Hours are 8:30a–11:45am. PPNS offers an extended day until 1:00 or 2:00pm. Parents can choose a two, three, four or five day program.

PPNS is flexible in scheduling around your needs and members of Payson Park Church receive tuition benefits.
