Our mission is to provide a safe, caring environment away from home where children can learn and grow in confidence and in ability in all aspects of development; physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually and creatively.
We see ourselves in partnership with parents and through our mutual sharing, we can ensure the best possible growth, development and learning for young children. Beachwood Nursery School believes parent participation is an important factor in school success.
We participate in the New Jersey's Child Care Subsidy Program for tuition assistance for eligible families, administered through the Ocean County's childcare resource and referral agency, The Children's Home Society (CHS of NJ). Please call or Contact Us via email for more information.
Safety Measures to Keep Everyone Healthy at School
Our staff is providing a safe, caring and nurturing classroom environment for your child that follows the COVID-19 health and safety guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and the Dept. of Children and Families Office of Licensing. We are happy that families, children and staff adapted to the following procedures for keeping everyone safe and to prevent and reduce the spread of COVID. Beachwood Nursery School follows the protocols and procedures established by the NJ Office of Licensing, Health Departments of the State of NJ and Ocean County, CDC and other authorities to guide and adjust health and safety policies based on changing trends in transmission.
Children and Staff Only Allowed Inside
Drop off and pick up take place outside by the playground with drive up area near Building 1, where one of your child's classroom teachers or an assistant will meet you. (For selected classrooms, drop off may take place at selected classroom doors after temperature checks and health screening have been conducted by Building 1.) This reduces the exposure of the children and teachers. Parents and families will be welcome into the classrooms after hours for Back to School nights and during family events. Visitors for special presentations and after-hours school tours for prospective families may take place after health screenings are completed.
Temperature Check and Health Screening Questionnaire Upon Arrival
Please pre-screen your child at home by taking their temperature. We will verify that no child has a fever when they arrive at BNS by screening again, along with a verbal health screening questionnaire; the same applies to staff as they arrive at school. By providing the daily health check, temperature check, and screening questionnaire, we are doing our part to keep the spread down and not bring illness into the school.
Staggered Playground Times and Enhanced Cleaning
We are limiting the number of groups outside on the playground at one time so there are fewer people crossing paths. Playground equipment is cleaned and disinfected before each class uses the playground.
