about our School

St. John’s Christian Nursery School has been impacting the lives of children and their families in the Turnersville area for over 35 years. Our mission is to share the love of Jesus Christ with children, not only through the Word of God, but by also providing a safe, nurturing environment in which children can grow and learn.

All our staff members are Christians and are dependent upon God for His provision in every area of their lives. They are committed to the belief that children deserve a safe, positive, nurturing and age-appropriate learning environment that is free of fear, pressure to "grow up’ and prejudice. We also believe that a successful nursery school ministry is the shared responsibility of children, parents and nursery school staff.
