“ICNS is truly a unique and special nursery school. The teachers are warm, caring, and nurturing and invested in each child’s experience and growth. The children are encouraged to explore, play, pretend and learn through doing for themselves. My son attended the Early Learners program and is now in the “Threes” program. My son always runs into school with a smile (despite his typically timid nature) and is reluctant to leave at the end of his school day. I feel so fortunate that he has had such a positive experience for his first years in school.”

“ICNS has done much more than shove numbers and letters down our son Nate’s throat. They are educating him from within and bringing out his best. At ICNS the faculty is not only concerned with Nate’s academics but also his social and emotional growth. Whether it’s a cooking project to expand the use of all five senses, or a field trip to the fire department to broaden his horizons, the team at ICNS always has creative ways to spark Nate’s interest. As a result of the contagious enthusiasm that the teachers display he puts tremendous effort into his daily works of art.  With every second that Nate spends at school having such great value towards his future, choosing ICNS has been one of our best parental decisions.”

“Islip Community Nursery School was a great school for both of my children.  They both loved going to school. The teachers were very nurturing and have a great relationship with the kids. It was a pleasure to see them blossom in a safe and secure learning environment with caring teachers.”

“Islip Community Nursery School is a wonderful school where children have the opportunity to explore, make new friends, and have fun. We had our first child attend another local nursery school and we were not happy. After 1 1/2 years we moved our son to Islip Community Nursery School and it was the best decision. Our son thrived at ICNS and really began to enjoy school. Since then, our daughter has attended and in another year our other daughter will be attending. We love everything about ICNS; the staff, the field trips, the playground, and most of all the great communication the school provides to the parents.  ICNS is the best preschool in the Islip area.”

“So so sad to be leaving Islip Community Nursery School (moving out of state). Hazel LOVES going to school. Not only is this school affordable but they really have wonderful teachers that really truly care for their students. They do so many things in the 2 hours they have my 2 year old… Paint, color, read books, play dress up, play babies, play block, sing songs, play outside, snack time, play with the water table, etc. I would 100% recommend this school to any parent in the area.”

“We sent our 3 boys there and they loved every minute of it. So did we! Our boys are 42, 38 and 34 and well adjusted to life, thanks in part to ICNS.”
