Welcome to Smoke Rise Nursery School
A Warm and Nurturing Educational Environment for Children Ages 2.5 through 5
About Our School
Smoke Rise Nursery School was established in 1955 and has been thriving ever since, educating children from Kinnelon and other neighboring towns. We are located in Kinnelon in the gated community of Smoke Rise. 

The goal of the school is to create a nurturing experience, allowing children to thrive socially, academically, and emotionally and to prepare them for a successful transition to kindergarten. The curriculum is play-based with an emphasis on learning. At Smoke Rise Nursery School, the skills required for present day kindergarten are carefully integrated into activities where children are exploring, interacting, discovering and having fun. Our teachers are CPR/First Aid certified and our school is accredited by the state of New Jersey. We have a 10-month program and competitive tuition. We are proudly serving Bloomingdale, Butler, Kinnelon, Pompton Lakes, Riverdale, West Milford and other surrounding towns. 

We have changed our cooperative approach in order to adapt to the needs of the community. Parents are no longer required to join the cooperative part of the school. The Executive Board and Trustees have decided to move the school towards more “non-volunteer” based on feedback received from current families and alumni. However, there are still a wide variety of opportunities to work for the school if you are interested. If you choose to serve on our Executive Board or one of our committees, you will be given a discount on our tuition. 

For the upcoming 2019-2020 school year, our three-year-old class runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Our four-year-old class runs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Our two-and-a-half-year-old class runs on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. We are offering an extra curriculum day for both the three- and four-year-old programs.  Students that participate in this program will experience thematic fun through subjects like countries, holidays, space, rain forest, gardening and much more.
