Thank you for considering the Haddam Cooperative Nursery School (HCNS) for your child’s preschool years! Founded in 1968, HCNS is a licensed (CT-DPH #12089) and insured preschool located in the First Congregational Church of Haddam in Haddam, CT. Accepting children ages 3-5 yrs, HCNS offers a 3-year-old program on Tuesdays and Thursdays and a 4-year-old program on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

To enroll your child please complete the Application for Enrollment, available either by email or here on our website. This form must be filled out and returned, with the $75.00 non-refundable registration fee, by the date specified in order to hold your child’s spot for the school year. Upon receipt of the application, the Enrollment Packet will be sent to you. Checks can be made out to HCNS.

The Enrollment Packet includes an Enrollment Form, a Health Form and a copy of the Haddam Cooperative Nursery School’s By-laws. Please read over and fill out all the necessary information and return all completed paperwork to the Registration Chairperson by the August Parent Orientation. The health form is not needed to hold a child’s spot, however, it is mandatory that the health form be submitted prior to your child’s first day of school or they will not be allowed to attend.

Health forms are valid for one year from the date of the actual exam. Doctor’s offices are very busy during the summer months and may not be able to fill out the health form immediately so please plan accordingly. Most offices have a copy of the health form on hand so if your child has already had their annual physical exam then you may be able to request the form over the phone rather than scheduling an appointment.

Class Schedule:

3 year olds – Tuesday & Thursday from 9:00am – 12:30pm
4 year olds – Wednesday & Friday from 9:00am – 2:30pm
(Half Day option also available for 4 year olds: 9:00am-11:30am or 12pm-2:30pm)
