Long Valley Christian Nursery School is a wonderful place of learning and love. My son had an amazing school year with his teachers Mrs. Mundt and Mrs. Marschall. He would ask me every day if it was a "school day" and always arrived and came home with a smile on his face. There is so much care taken in the learning and socialization activities and lots of opportunities for families to be a part of their chid's education through the various programs the children put on for everyone. I can't say enough about this great school and the teachers there.

Long Valley Christian Nursery School is the best pre-school in Long Valley. They expose the kids to so many wonderful things and help them to develop life skills and independence.

Long Valley Christian Nursey School is the best school in the area. I have had two children go through the school and it was wonderful. The staff and teachers are amazing !!! The love and care they have for the children and the families was nothing I have ever experienced in a school. My youngest just graduated in May and I was I tears saying good bye. My children are summer birthdays yet scored so well in the kindergarten entrance exams. The teachers make sure that your child is learning what they need to know to get into kindergarten. The friendships that my kids have developed with children there have been amazing. I love that this school not only teaches children how to love and care for one another but also keeps up with the town curriculum. If you want a school that makes you feel like you are home and apart of a family, this is the school for you!!!

We have only been with Long Valley Christian for a year but it didn't take that long to know that it was the perfect fit for our family. Our daughter loved the First Friends class. The teachers and staff were wonderful. We met some wonderful families and made some great friends. I look forward to the next few years at this school.

Long Valley Christian is my choice for the best pre-school in LV. My 2 girls went there and now my son is in the program. The love and care that is given to each child can't be matched and it is amazing to watch your toddler grow and develope each day under the direction of such amazing people! JM

Long Valley Christian Nursery School gets my vote, too!
Amy June 27, 2012 at 08:48 PM
Long Valley Christian Nursery School is our pick for the best pre-school on Long Valley. I have had children there for the last 5 years. The love and care and nurturing done there can not be compared. The children that come out of that pre-school can be picked out in the Kindergarten classes for their knowledge, confidence, and sense of morals!
Amy June 27, 2012 at 08:49 PM
I got up many years at 5 am to get my three children in Mrs. Dietrich's class!! She is the best!!!

Long Valley Christian School has the best program not only in Long Valley, but for miles around. Their history is a testament to the dynamic programs and quality of education in a caring, friendly and enriching environment. The staff is simply the best. The school is the model for others to aspire to. Burt Horner

Long Valley Christian is the best!!! My son attended this year and the experience he had was nothing shy of amazing. Mrs. Schaaf, Mrs. Pentz, and Mrs. Marschall treated us all like family. I was so impressed with the tenacity and commitment they had to each and every child in ensuring a quality preschool education in an extreme caring environment. I cannot praise them enough!!!

LVCNS is an amazing Pre-school. Then entire staff is full of love and so very nurturing. Both our daughters began their schooling here and have done incredible things in their young lives. The foundation for learning begins in a warm, loving environment...there is none to compare to Long Valley Christian Nursery School.
Mindy Burbridge June 28, 2012 at 07:22 PM
Long Valley Christian Nursery School is utterly AMAZING!! My three daughters all attended and my entire family loves that school. Every teacher has a vested interest in your child. When our oldest daughter entered school we couldn't have asked for a better first school experience. Every teacher (and the director) are all so loving and caring. The children participate in wonderful shows, use their manners at snack time, learn so many new things in fun and creative ways, go on exciting field trips, play in a lovely playground to name a few. I could write a book on why LVCNS is THE best pre-school. I am sure the other schools in the area are wonderful, but LVCNS is the best!!
andrea katz June 29, 2012 at 03:17 AM
Valley Brook by far is the best school around! The amazing staff as well as the wonderful enriching curriculum surpasses all of the other nursery schools in the area. My children all attended from pre school thru kindergarten. Each of them received personalized attention in regards to their social, emotional, and academic success.

Long Valley Christian Nursery School is a great school. My kids have such wonderful memories of their time there. I now have my youngest starting in September. The teachers are very kind and provide a wonderful first experience of school.
Kara Olsen June 29, 2012 at 07:08 PM

Long Valley Christian Nursery School is the best pre-school in Long Valley. It has a loving staff with many years of experience and wonderful leadership in Jennifer and JoAnn.

Long Valley Christian, hands down. The members of this committed, highly educated staff approach learning with a philosophy that consists of the perfect combination of nurturing, love, encouragement, and motivation to excel. I am blown away by the dedication of the teachers to their programs, and the love they have for their students. My daughter couldn't have had a better experience there, and I can't wait for my younger daughter to start next year!
