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 December Happenings

From the Director

We are entering that time of year which is on almost everyone's list of favorite holidays.  In the rush and bustle of Christmas preparations (those things that we all complain about having to do, but wouldn't dream of eliminating from our celebrations), let's take time to remember the deeper meaning of the season.  Here at Heaven Sent we will be discussing in detail the story of the nativity with your children, even as we also talk about Santa and elves and presents and those things dear to little ones' hearts.  We will be hoping to also make shepherds and angels and of course, Baby Jesus, dear to their hearts as well.  I found that my children, even when they were very small, loved to play with our nativity sets.  There are plenty of inexpensive ones available that your children would enjoy using.  Take advantage of an Advent calendar which will help lead up to the joy of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.    All of the Heaven Sent staff wish you and your family a most blessed holiday season and a very happy new year!
