Nutfield Cooperative:  
Parent-Involved Preschool for Derry & Nearby New Hampshire Towns

Nutfield is a private, non-profit school offering educational programs for children ages three to five years old, and we’ve been serving the children of Derry and surrounding New Hampshire communities since 1969. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin. 

Our goal is to help children grow—socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically—and our method is cooperative. By combining the efforts of a caring, experienced staff with the active participation of parents, Nutfield builds a unique bridge between the intimacy of the home and the larger world outside. 

Our long-time home in the historic First Parish Church facility sets a tone of respect for the past as we prepare children for the challenges of their future. Facilities include several classrooms and play areas, a safe, modern playground with commercial-quality play sets, and a large indoor space for gym and special programs conducted throughout the year. Nutfield’s staff of educators is supplemented by outside experts for Gym, Music, and Storytelling, and, of course, by the richness of every parent’s active and ongoing involvement.
