The Harpswell Community Nursery School was founded in the fall of 2003 in response to the strong need for an early education program in the town of Harpswell, Maine.  The school is licensed by the Maine Department of Human Services and is located in the Fellowship Hall of the Elijah Kellogg Church in Harpswell Center.

HCNS teachers have extensive early childhood credentials and classroom experience. Our 1:6 teacher to student ratio allows us to provide a unique level of individual attention.

Mission Statement
The mission of the Harpswell Community Nursery School is to provide  high quality early childhood education program that emphasizes developmental learning, social relationships, family involvement and care for the environment. Guided by the values of inclusion and equity, the school aims to serve a diverse population in terms of socioeconomic status, cultural background and ability levels.
