Established in 1971, we are noted for Excellence in Education in the Stanhope area. Working with families, Our Savior nurtures each child's early Christian faith and education.  Our school prides itself on its trained staff. Teachers and assistants are required to attend 20+ hours of training each year.  We thrive in the ability to make children's first school experience successful and fun.  We are a proud member of Strengthening Families, which is a researched-informed approach to increase family strengths, enhance child development and reduce the likelihood of child abuse and neglect.  Our Savior Nursery School is also a participant of GROW NJKids, New Jersey's quality rating improvement system, to raise the quality of child care and early learning across the state.   Currently, we are the only Sussex County preschool with a 4 Star Rating.   


At Our Savior Nursery School, we share the love of Jesus with children and their families in a caring, Christian environment.  Our Christian approach to learning and our dedicated staff makes us more than a school, it is a life experience!  At Our Savior, we believe that children thrive in an age appropriate program, within a safe and nurturing environment.  We offer Creative Curriculum, which is designed to foster growth, stimulate curiosity, and challenge physical and mental needs.  We encourage the development of each child socially, physically, spirituality, emotionally, and intellectually.
