Our Philosophy

We believe that the pre-school years are very critical ones in the life of a child. The experiences in nursery school can be gentle steps in becoming more comfortable with new children and adults. We also want to develop positive attitudes toward future learning situations.

The emphasis in our school is in creating experiences to promote social, emotional, physical, and academic growth. We provide opportunities for the children to develop:

  • the importance of self
  • the importance of others
  • sharing space, attention and materials
  • independence
  • responsibility
  • working in a classroom situation
  • listening skills
  • manners

Our arrival and dismissal at each classroom door encourages parent-teacher and parent-parent interaction.

We pride ourselves in offering a quality program at an affordable rate.








Classroom learning

Our Staff

The quality of a school depends to a great extent on its teachers and helpers. We have dedicated, trained teachers and assistants in each classroom with a very low ratio of children to adults.


BAMNS is a non-profit nursery school established in 1966. We are chartered by the Board of Regents, New York State Board of Education.

Every teacher we have worked with at BAMNS has been outstanding! The attention to each student's needs is evident. The kids are loved, cared for and educated. The enrichment program has given our daughter more independence and ownership of her learning. We'll be bringing our youngest back in September!

The teachers at BAMNS are wonderful. It's so exciting to see my kids light up when they run into their classrooms! I love how the teachers incorporate learning in all the fun they have in school. All kids need to have a teacher who loves teaching her students as much as my children's teacher does.
