Heaven Sent October Happenings

From the Director:

It always amazes me!  The calendar changes to October and the weather seems to instantly change!  We feel the cooler weather and start to notice the leaves turning colors.  The shorter days and waking up to the darkness in the morning are also reminders of a new season for us!  For many of you, this is a new “season” for the lives of you and your children as well.  We are delighted with how well the school year began.  The children are all adjusting beautifully, and most are really in the swing of things now.  October will be a fun month for us all here at Heaven Sent.   We appreciate your encouragement and kind comments to all of us on the staff during the past month.  We have enjoyed meeting you and we all look forward to continuing to get to know parents, brothers, and sisters of our Heaven Sent angels.

Welcome to Heaven Sent Nursery School

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


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!
