Goshen Area Parent Nursery School

Our Philosophy

GAPNS is a magnificent preschool with an over 40 year history of success in the Village of Goshen. We are a modified cooperative preschool whose administration, budgeting and operations are run by the parents through an elected Executive Board. Our learning model is based on "learning through play" with an emphasis on literacy, socialization, role-play and academics.
