'More than a school': GAPNS grows with every generation

GOSHEN — This year marks the 35th anniversary that Goshen Area Parent Nursery School (GAPNS) has been introducing children in the community to education. Now, former students are enrolling their own children. Current and alumni parents and teachers celebrated the milestone anniversary recently with its Big Night Out Fundraiser at Delancey’s Restaurant. 

Sue Moore, a founding GAPNS parent remembers, “Several parents wanted to open a school where the parents would not only have input, but actually participate in the classroom, enjoying a true hands-on experience.” 

And so, GAPNS — a cooperative preschool — was born. Administration, budgeting and operations are all managed by the parents through an elected executive board. In 1981, when the school opened in space at the First Presbyterian Church in the Village of Goshen, sessions were offered for three and four-year-olds. Enrollment grew rapidly. Over the years the program offerings expanded to include Toddler (18 months) to pre-kindergarten programs, as well as summer camp.

The children in Marie Moran’s pre-kindergarten class at Goshen Area Parent Nursery School (GAPNS) made a grand gesture on Valentine’s Day to veterans. Their families donated gifts of candy, toiletries, activities, and more for hospitalized and homeless veterans, while the students created Valentines. This is a patriotic group, having mastered the Pledge of Allegiance this year. The donations were received by the United War Veterans Council, which hosted Valentine’s Day celebrations at Veterans’ hospitals in New York. The children were thrilled to learn this week that they received a box of goodies, including two new books for the class library, from friends at IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America) as a thank you.
