About PNS

Pilgrim Nursery School (PNS) is a nonsectarian, non-profit preschool. We have served Lexington and surrounding towns since 1967. We are located on the first floor of the Pilgrim Congregational Church UCC, which is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood. PNS facilities include three classrooms and a spacious indoor gross motor room. We also have a kitchen used by the teachers and children for special school and charity events. Our large, secluded, well-equipped playground has a Woodcarpet ™ Safety Surface, multiple swings, a climbing structure, a large sandbox and a paved area for ride-on toys. The playground abuts conservation land which allows for privacy, shade and a beautiful natural setting.

Our primary goal at Pilgrim Nursery School is to encourage a child to become a self-confident, curious and inventive person. We provide both organized and independent activities that help develop the child’s social, emotional, cognitive, physical and creative growth. We strive to stimulate an interest in learning and, most of all, to foster enjoyment of life experiences and the world around us.

“We come to Pilgrim each year because of the exceptional staff. Everyone there genuinely cares about the children and seeks to give each family a flexible, stress-free and wonderful experience. There’s no better way to introduce your child to the classroom.” ~ PNS Parent, Lauren F.
