Welcome to Smoke Rise Nursery School
A Warm and Nurturing Educational Environment for 3 & 4 Year Olds
About Our School
The Smoke Rise Nursery School located in Kinnelon was established in 1955 and for the past 60 years has been educating children from Kinnelon and other neighboring towns. For the first time in its history, the school is changing its cooperative approach in order to adapt to the needs of the community. Parents are not required to join the cooperative part of the school. The Executive Board and Trustees have decided to move the school towards more “non-volunteer” based on feedback received from current families and alumni.

The goal of the school is to create a nurturing experience, allowing children to thrive socially, academically emotionally and to prepare them for a successful transition to Kindergarten. Our teachers are CPR/First Aid certified and our school is accredited by the state of New Jersey. We have a 10-month program and competitive tuition. We are proudly serving Bloomingdale, Butler, Kinnelon, Pompton Lakes, Riverdale and West Milford.

We still have spots available for the 2015-2016 school year. Our 3 year olds attend school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am to 1 pm. Our 4 year olds attend school on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 am to 1 pm.
