Pumpkin Patch Day Nursery School

The Pumpkin Patch Day Nursery was organized in 1973 by the Commack United Methodist Church as a non-profit, non-sectarian nursery school with facilities for nursery sessions, playgroups, summer camp, full-day and extended-day sessions. Pumpkin Patch is licensed by New York State to provide early childhood programs.


We offer a wide variety of experiences and materials for pre-school children. We seek to develop habits in each child for healthy living and attitudes that will enable the child to get along with others of the same age. At Pumpkin Patch, a portion of each morning and afternoon is devoted to activities designed to foster a child's intellectual and perceptual growth. Plus, we have a fine, fenced playground and an indoor gymnasium to help develop strong bodies.


Activities include:

  • Language Arts - Story time, Puppet play, pre-reading skills & Letter recognition

  • Pre-Math - Block play, Measuring, Sorting, Matching, Counting, Number recognition.

  • Science - Water table, Cooking, Plants, Seasonal activities.

  • Creative Arts - Easel painting, Pasting, Finger painting, Collage, Mobiles, Modeling clay.
