Unique Nursery School and Day Care
Town Line Road, Commack, NY 11725.
The Pumpkin Patch Nursery was organized in 1973 by the Commack United
Methodist Church as a non-profit,
non-sectarian nursery school with facilities for nursery sessions, playgroups,
summer camp, full-day and extended-day sessions. Pumpkin Patch is housed
in a building that was once used as a public school building, and the facility is licensed
by New York State to provide early childhood programs.
At Pumpkin Patch, we offer a wide variety of experiences and materials for
pre-school children. We seek to develop habits in each child for healthy
living and attitudes that will enable the child to get along with others
of the same age.
A portion of each morning and afternoon is devoted to activities designed
to foster a child's intellectual and perceptual growth. Plus, we have a
fine, fenced playground and an indoor gymnasium to help develop strong bodies.
We invite families to visit our facilities. Please call 499-6498 to arrange
a time for you and your child to meet the staff and see the Pumpkin Patch.
We look forward to meeting you!
