We are very happy to announce that the school will reopen in September with classes for three- and four-year-olds. For the 2021-2022 school year, the 3s will meet Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00-11:15am. The 4s will meet Monday-Thursday, 11:45-2:15. A two-year-old class will not be scheduled for Sept. The Board will make a determination later in the year about possibly resuming a 2s class in January.
Please keep the school in your prayers as we work and make plans to safely reopen our doors that have been closed for a year and a half to the children in our community.
The new telephone # for the school is 518-801-2873
The Knox Nursery School (KNS) was established in 1974 by the Knox Reformed Church
to provide our community with a structured and supervised preschool program. The
school is regulated by a Board. The members of this Board volunteer their time and
services and are responsible to the Consistory of the Knox and Thompson’s Lake
Reformed Church. The school is a nonprofit organization.
The child attends the nursery school, not to learn the three R’s, but to build habits and
share experiences. S/he will learn to make new friends; do new things; learn more about
the world outside their own family; and learn to live and learn with larger groups of
children. Adjustment to the nursery school situation and routines is a fundamental
aspect of our program. The children need time to learn to function in the group. The
program is designed to encourage this adjustment and then to build upon it. For these
reasons, the school operates a continuous session from September to June.
In addition to the everyday experiences such as music, storytelling and art projects, the
children will have visits from people in the community who have talents/careers to
share with the children (firemen, police officers, chefs, librarians, EMTs, etc.).
We offer classes for children who are two, three and four years old. Our twos meet twice
a week from 9:00-11:15. The threes and fours meet 3 times a week from 9:00-11:15 and
11:45-2:15, respectively. For more information about our program and tuition cost
please call the school at (518) 801-2873.
