Mission Statement:
Harborlight Nursery School’s mission is to enhance the lives of our children, their families, our staff, and the community. We are committed to supporting and nurturing the physical, emotional, and educational needs of each of these constituencies.
Since 1960, Harborlight Nursery School has led the community as an affordable, top-quality preschool proudly serving Beverly, MA and the surrounding area. We serve children from 2 years 9 months until they are ready to enter Kindergarten. Our competent staff is comprised of dedicated Early Childhood professionals who all meet or exceed the educational levels and experience required for their positions. Our bright and cheerful classrooms provide an atmosphere within which we can nurture a positive and exciting learning environment. Our outdoor play area is complemented by a large indoor gymnasium for large motor activities and special family events. We are a non-profit, non-denominational school housed in the First Baptist Church in Beverly.


  • “Harborlight is the best environment for my daughter not only because of the program’s commitment to quality, comprehensive and developmentally appropriate education, but also because of the friendly community of teachers and families who share in the same values of learning.”

  • “It’s an outstanding place for children – the staff and teachers are extremely skilled and highly qualified and so clearly love children and love working with them and helping them grow and explore and find delights in the world around them. My child is seen as and respected as the unique individual that he is – as are all children at HNS.”

  • “My child is considered as an individual in all aspect of his development and socialization. He has excelled in several areas that were not previously offered to him. I am thankful for how age appropriate but real STEAM and literacy activities are incorporated into every unit and especially for his thoughtful, caring, and qualified teachers!”
