"Childhood should be a journey, not a race."

Registration News:We have only a few spots available in our programs.  Call for a tour today! 908-852-2006


Heaven Sent offers our students a developmental preschool curriculum in a loving environment and Christian nursery school.  We believe that all children are unique and wonderful creations of God, and need to be treated with dignity, love, and respect.

Heaven Sent does everything with our school’s motto in mind:  “Childhood should be a journey, not a race”.

Heaven Sent is a ministry of The First Presbyterian Church of Hackettstown, NJ, and is fully licensed by the office of licensing of the NJ Division of Youth and Family Services.  We are located at 298 Main Street, Hackettstown, NJ 07840


Heaven Sent students enjoy a variety of special days throughout the year.  From holiday celebrations to color-themed days, a mid-winter beach day and comfy and cozy “slumber party” day we enjoy appealing to the creativity and imagination of our angels.  Other special days throughout the year include Silly Sock Day, Wild ‘n Wacky Wednesday, Teddy Bear Day, My Favorite Thing Day, and Box Car day.


Heaven Sent angels and their families celebrate family fun and creativity with our Creative Family Fun experience.  Several times throughout the school year, children and their families work together to fashion an art project at home that the children then bring in to show their classmates.  Some of the Creative Family Fun activities have included Paper Cup Critters, "Disguise a Turkey to save it at Thanksgiving!", Decorate a Christmas tree, "mini-me" and an "All About Me" poster.


Our angels are so proud when their family members can visit our classrooms.  We offer a variety of opportunities for parents, grandparents, and/or older siblings to be part of the fun!  Each year, parents can sign up for our Stay and Play program where they take part in the free play part of our morning, our Share a Story (or Two!) opportunity where they read to their child’s class, and our Holiday Helpers, where they help out with our holiday celebrations!

Heaven Sent September Happenings

From the Director:

If you are like me, you are in awe of how fast the summer came and went.  It seems like just yesterday we were just releasing our butterflies out into the world as we said goodbye to our 4 and 5 year olds, who are now on their way to Kindergarten.  A new school year is upon us and we are all very busy getting ready for all of our new and returning angels.  Even though this year is coming with new challenges, change and precaution, our mission remains the same…to provide a fun, loving and learning environment for your angels. As we prepare our rooms, we are imagining the children playing with the toys and sitting around the tables, learning how to cut with scissors and write their names. Each one of your children has been thought about as we write their names on their table tags and class lists.  We can’t wait until we spend our days with them and watch them grow. It’s a privilege to be with them and we thank you for entrusting us with your treasures from God.
