About Us

North Shore Nursery School is a non-profit independent preschool program that serves children ages 2 through pre-Kindergarten.

In 1962, an inspired group of parents and a visionary director founded our special school whose sole focus is excellence in early childhood education. In 1984, North Shore Nursery School successfully raised the funds to relocate to our current setting and build our unique, child-centric facility. As we’ve grown, the school has benefited from the talent and insight of subsequent directors, teachers, parents, grandparents, and alumni. At the core of each constituent's efforts is an appreciation of high-quality early childhood education and its importance in fostering the skills required for a life-long love of learning.

Quick Fact

Our school house and grounds are comprised of several acres of land and our campus is walkable to the Beverly Commons Conservation Area. We appreciate and respect the abutting acres of land belonging to our neighbors at Glen Urquhart School. We acknowledge and honor the land as the N'Dakinna, the traditional homeland of the Wabanaki, Pennacook, and Abenaki people.
