The Village Nursery School (VNS) is an independent, non-religious, non-profit, state-licensed nursery school that provides a quality preschool education in a nurturing environment.
We were established in 1957 as "The Village Cooperative Nursery School" by a group of parents to provide the community with a quality preschool for children aged three to five years old, regardless of race, creed, color, or gender.
The school offers three classes (3 year old, 4 year old, and Pre-K) and is operated by a parent-volunteer Board of Directors. We are in operation from September until after Memorial Day and follow the Farmington public school calendar for snow days, holidays, and vacations.
The Village Nursery School operates under the oversight of a Board of Directors comprised of parent volunteers. Parents interested in being involved in shaping their child’s preschool education are welcome to serve in one of the many positions, ranging from president to secretary and many others.
The Board of Directors works closely with the teachers and director of the school and is involved in both the day to day operation of the school as well as the overarching vision for the future. The Board meets monthly to plan special events for the school, set salaries and tuition, fundraise for new classroom materials and support the teachers in any way possible.
The Board also negotiates the lease for the classroom space, obtains proper insurance, collects tuition and oversees all personnel decisions. If you are interested in attending a board meeting or joining the board, please email the current Board of Directors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
