Our School

The Demarest Cooperative Nursery School was established in 1965. We are housed in the educational wing of the United Methodist Church located at 109 Hardenburgh Ave in Demarest, N.J. Our curriculum is nonsectarian….no religious instruction is given. However, we do celebrate various holiday traditions.
