Amherst Nursery School
Amherst Nursery School is a non-profit, non-denominational, private cooperative nursery school with classes for two, three and four year old children.  The 2010-2011 ANS enrollment is 86 students who attend either 2, 3 or 5 days per week.  Classes are taught by experienced preschool teachers assisted by teacher aides under the supervision of the on-staff education director.  Parents have the opportunity to participate in the cooperative by serving as "co-opers" in their child's classroom, by performing other jobs around the school as necessary, by attending meetings and special events, and by serving on the Parent Board of Directors.  In 2008, ANS began a collaboration with the Amherst Central School District to provide Universal Pre-Kingergarten (UPK) for district four year olds.  UPK classes, which do not have a co-oping commitment, run five days per week and are free of charge.
