The Milldam Nursery School, a parent cooperative preschool, was founded in 1969 with a primary goal of helping children learn the dynamics of living in a peer group situation by nurturing their social and emotional development. Milldam is a program for children ages 2 years 6 months to 5 years, and is located in the classrooms of the First Parish Church in Concord, Massachusetts. As a cooperative preschool, the professional staff works with the parents, who volunteer in the classrooms and help with administrative activities. Teachers, parents and children have the opportunity to be involved in education together that results in strong home-school connections, continued growth of good parenting skills, and the education of the whole child.
As parents and teachers working together, we are constantly striving to provide the best possible pre-school experience. This means being in tune with the preschooler's development and abilities to create a learning environment which is exciting and interesting - a place where children find that school is fun! No website can convey the magic you will experience being in your child’s classroom, so please contact us with any questions you may have about our school, our programs, or the application process.
