BHN’s foundations can be traced to the late 1950’s, when a group of Brown Memorial Church families acknowledged the need for a mother’s group in the area. Eventually their group grew into a cooperative nursery school that served the needs of both working and non-working parents. Bolton Hill Nursery was officially founded in 1969.
In the mid-1980s, Bolton Hill Nursery became an independent, non-religious, non-profit school utilizing a play-based philosophy of learning. In December 2012, the BHN board made the decision to purchase our current building, the former home of Family and Children's Services. Importantly, the building boasts a big yard perfect for children’s outdoor discovery and spacious, bright, “homey” rooms ideal for indoor investigation.
Please consider a donation to Bolton Hill Nursery's Annual Fund:
Can you imagine the 200 block of W. Lanvale without the historic building that is the home of Bolton Hill Nursery? Do you love the sights and sounds of young children playing under the trees? Bolton Hill without the Nursery would not be the same, and we need your support!
With your generosity, we can continue our stewardship of this building and help foster creative, inquisitive young minds through our exemplary play-based program both indoors and out! Your gift to BHN ensures a bright future for our students and the community at large.
