Rocky River Presbyterian Nursery School was established in 1961 by

the Rev. Jim Walker and Arlene Campbell. There were 20 children who met three mornings per week. Later they expanded to five days a week, with preschool sessions in the morning and afternoon. Today there are morning and afternoon classes for children between the ages of two and a half and five with space for over 100 children. We are continuing to evolve based on the needs of the community and will offer extended hours for the 4’s and Pre-k classes for 2021-2022.
