​​Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church

Nursery School

BHPCNS was founded in 1957 by the ladies' group of Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church.  Initially a playgroup of just a few children, the school has grown to an international enrollment of over 175 students offering classes to 2, 3 and 4-year-olds.

Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church Nursery School is a preschool of excellence with an international enrollment, offering programs for two, three and four-year-olds. Our staff members are extremely well qualified. Each teacher has a college degree or training in preschool education; assistants are qualified and experienced in early childhood care. Admission is open to children of all races, faiths, ethnic backgrounds and nationalities.

As a mission of the Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church, the Nursery School seeks to provide a relaxed atmosphere of loving and caring in which children are encouraged to develop their own talents, uniqueness and self-esteem. Bradley Hills nurtures all aspects of a child’s growth: social, emotional, physical, mental and spiritual. School is a group experience. Therefore, our play-based programs place an equal emphasis on helping the child learn the disciplines of social interactions and personal responsibility. As a church-sponsored institution, the Nursery School seeks to reflect Christian values in its activities. Stories, pictures and prayers drawn from Christian traditions are included in the curriculum.


BHPCNS is a mission of the Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church, but is run independently, governed by a Board of Directors.  The Board of Directors is comprised of Church members, current BHCPNS parents and staff.  The current Chairman of the BHPCNS Board is Souheil Inati.
