We are a school with a long, rich history. We are proud to have students today whose parents were also students.





  • We began in 1966 as St. John’s Community Nursery School, a non-profit/non-sectarian preschool.
  • In 2004, we changed our name to Hingham Nursery School.
  • Also in 2004, parents, former parents and the greater community banded together to raise money and search for a new location so the school could be saved for future students.
  • In 2006, we opened the doors to our new building at 1101 Main Street, which was made possible by dedicated parents and a supportive community.
  • To date, over 2,000 students have spent their preschool years with us.


We are open 5 days per week with six separate preschool programs.





◊  14 dedicated teachers

◊  A director, an administrative assistant, and a financial administrator

◊  Nursery school music and physical education specialists


Our commitment to ongoing training keeps our teachers’ skills and knowledge up-to-date.  A dedicated 16-member board of directors governs the school.  We have operated with a balanced budget since our inception.
