Milldam Nursery School is one of the oldest and most established preschools in Concord, Massachusetts, serving children and families since 1969.  We are a cooperative, play-based preschool with a dynamic, developmentally appropriate environment.  Our educators create engaging, interactive classrooms full of opportunities to learn through play, as we believe that play is the best context in which children learn.  As a cooperative preschool, parents have the unique opportunity to participate first hand in their child’s first educational experience, in and out of the classroom. 

Milldam Nursery School is licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care.



At Milldam Nursery School, we offer classes for children aged 2 to 5 years old.



Play is the best context in which children learn.  At Milldam, our curriculum helps children become independent, negotiate conflicts, and build relationships. 


As a parent at a cooperative pre-school you are given the unique opportunity of active participation in your child’s  educational experience.

“I sent all of my children to Milldam, and have found their preparation for Kindergarten to be second to none. They all left Milldam confident, well-rounded, socially developed, and ready to take on life's next challenges.” - Alexa
