Nursery School


Our goal is to provide a fun, caring and loving, educational environment for children that is uniquely Catholic, offering an opportunity for them to grow intellectually and emotionally.   Our program offers an amazing mix of hands-on learning, child-directed activities, academics, crafts and more for your child.  The program introduces the Catholic faith along with challenging academic growth to help a child learn and thrive in a nurturing classroom.  Contact Debbie DellaVilla, our Director,  at 518 346-4926 x 201 for more information, or to register for our program.

Our Nursery School Program is designed around a curriculum for children ages three through five. In accordance with the age guidelines for local public schools, all students must register for a class dependent upon their age as of December 1st.  


To register, you must fill out a registration form, provide a current copy of your child’s immunization record, a copy of your child’s birth certificate, and pay the Non Refundable registration fee. If you would like to schedule a tour of our facility, have further questions, or would like a registration form, please contact Debbie DellaVilla, the Nursery School Director at 518 346 4926 x 201.  Our annual open house is held the last week of January.  Please call the above number for details.


Toilet Training Requirements:

Students attending the program are required to be fully toilet trained prior to the start of the school year. (No pull-ups or training pants)


Illness Policy:

Children which show signs of illness, such as temperature greater than 100 degrees orally, cannot be accepted to class. Staff members are not permitted to administer over the counter medications to students. All students must be symptom free from any pink eye, rashes, discolored mucus, vomiting, diarrhea, lice, parasites, or fever for 48 hours before they are permitted to attend classes. This is to ensure that contagious illnesses are not spread to peers and staff.


Inclement Weather:

Our Lady Queen of Peace Nursery School generally follows the Schalmont school calendar with special days or holidays modified as necessary. Cancellation of classes due to inclement weather will be addressed via the local news channels following the Schalmont School calendar. Winter weather can be unpredictable at times and our preschool will strive to maintain a schedule that is safe for our students and staff.
