The Nursery School staff wishes each of you a Happy New Year!
Brrr…..It’s Cold Outside
In the event of the parking lot being slippery near the front doors, I will be opening the doors closest to the parking lot exit. This area seems to remain ice free.
Inclement Weather School Closings Delays
As a reminder, Westminster Nursery School follows the Berkeley Heights Public Schools when dealing with inclement weather closings and delays. Should the Berkeley Heights Public Schools close, Nursery School will be closed. Should the Berkeley Heights Public Schools have a delayed opening, Nursery School will have a delayed opening. For Nursery School, a delayed opening means morning sessions will run from 10:00 AM – 12:00 noon, Extended Day from 12:00 noon-1:00 PM and afternoon K-E sessions will run from 12:45 PM – 2:45 PM with children eating lunch before their arrival.

Planetarium Field Trip for 4s
During the month of January, our younger classes will be talking about the day/night sky and our 4s classes will be talking about the Solar System. The 4s will enhance this unit with a field trip to the Raritan Valley Community College Planetarium. All 4s classes are scheduled to go to the planetarium on Wednesday, January 9th. The program the children will see has proven to be very educational (and entertaining) for the children. Permission sheets will be posted on the classroom door. There will be a limit on the number of parents who are able to accompany the classes, as we have a limit on the number of people we can send to the planetarium.
Parent Teacher Conferences will be held in January. School is not in session during your classes conferences. The playroom will be open (with supervision by a Nursery School staff member). Conference time sign-ups will be posted on the classroom doors. Conference days are as follows:
