Hear from local families about their experience at Forest Hill Nursery School.

"It was important to me to be involved in my children’s education, and to have an atmosphere that was loving and warm. I sent both of my children to FHNS and loved the experience so much that the 2nd time around I became a board member. The teachers are amazing, the other parents were kind and became a second family. Both of my children loved their time at FHNS. I would definitely recommend FHNS to other Harford County families."

"FHNS is a traditional preschool based on all the things that matter- gifted and experienced teachers, loving environment, tried and true curriculum, and student-centered fun. In a high paced world, this program allows you and your child to slow down and focus on the fundamentals of learning. A hidden gem in Harford County!"

--Kelly Long


"My 3 daughters all went through the 3 and 4 year old programs at FHNS. I treasured my time in the classroom with my girls and also treasured their stories of their experiences when I was not there. My girls looked forward to going to school each day and were so prepared to begin Kindergarten. I recommend FHNS for any family looking for a strong preschool experience that focuses on family."

"My daughter was a part of the 4 year old program and being that it was such a wonderful experience, my son was part of both the 3 year old and 4 year old programs. My daughter needed another year of preschool before entering Kindergarten. Though I was happy with the program she attended, I wanted a different approach. I called around to local centers and was immediately impressed by the friendliness and the professionalism of Forest Hill Nursery School. When researching different preschools, the curriculum, parental involvement and cost was what was important in my search. When visiting the school, the classroom was clean, neat and organized. It was definitely kid-friendly and appealing. I can't say enough good things when it comes to the experiences my children, as well as I have had with FHNS. My children loved their teachers, still claiming that they are their favorite and I felt that each teacher individualized the instruction to meet their needs. My children went on with lasting relationships and I can say the same for myself. Being a part of your child's first school experience is something I will treasure forever. I am grateful to the teachers and the parents I met along the way. I highly recommend a co-op program for the parent that wishes to experience "the firsts" for her child. It was a wonderful time being able to spend some quality time with my children and being a part of their first experiences in a classroom setting."

"I was looking for a preschool that incorporated parental involvement, elementary preparation, and a strong curriculum. As a former elementary school teacher, I know the importance of all of these things. I found out about FHNS through several family members and friends. My daughter attended both the 3 and 4 year old programs. She is starting kindergarten this year, and I feel that she is extremely ready to take on the challenges of the rigorous curriculum. FHNS teachers did a phenomenal job of not only teaching her how to be a student, but helping her to establish a good foundation for future learning. She has a positive outlook on school and loves learning because of her first experience with Mrs. O'Donnell and Mrs. Emerson. Both teachers are not only caring and compassionate, but also highly qualified. My two sons will also be attending FHNS. I enthusiastically recommend it to anyone looking for a preschool program!"

"My daughter attended the 4 year old program My sister had a friend who told her about the school. I wanted a school with a good curriculum and a small class ratio. I also looked for a school that was a co-op because I enjoy helping out. I absolutely loved FHNS! Mrs. Emerson is a great teacher who genuinely cares about her students! She gives each child one on one time and has more patience then I do!!! My daughter, Jennifer, grew tremendously at FHNS. She made a ton of friends and because of Mrs. Emerson, she loves to do math!!! I would strongly recommend FHNS to my friends and family!"
