A safe and nurturing preschool community of children, parents, and teachers.


New Morning Nursery School is a play-based preschool in Madison, Wisconsin. New Morning was organized as a non-profit, parent cooperative preschool in 1972. We offer half-day preschool programs for children 2-6 years of age. We believe that children learn best through play. Our child-centered programs balance the needs and developmental levels of each individual child and group of children. We’ll work with each child during every stage of growth, from separation worries and potty learning to social interactions and pre-literacy.

Our preschool curriculum fosters social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development, problem solving, independence, self-reliance, and respect for others in a safe and nurturing community with the guidance of highly experienced and loving teachers. New Morning is state licensed and accredited by the City of Madison.


As we close out the school year, we’re seeking your input! Please consider taking the time to share your feedback about your experiences as parents of NMNS students this year and about our major fundraising event, the Spring Auction.
