Welcome to Smoke Rise Nursery School
A Warm and Nurturing Educational Environment for Children Ages 2.5 through 5
About Our School
The Smoke Rise Nursery School located in Kinnelon was established in 1955 and for 63 years has been educating children from Kinnelon and other neighboring towns. For the first time in its history, the school has changed its 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.

The goal of the school is to create a nurturing experience, allowing children to thrive socially, academically 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.

For the upcoming 2018-2019 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 Tuesdays 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. The optional day for the three-year-old class is Monday and for the four-year-old class it is Thursday. Students that participate in this program will experience thematic fun through subjects like countries, holidays, space, rain forest, gardening and much more.
