The Shadyside Presbyterian Church Nursery School (SPCNS), a program of the Shadyside Presbyterian Church, has been providing children in the Pittsburgh's East End with a solid educational beginning since 1951. Its caring and stimulating environment allows children to discover and begin to develop their social, intellectual, creative, emotional, moral, and physical skills in a developmentally appropriate manner.

Classes are led by caring, highly educated and trained head teachers and assistant teachers who hold college degrees, have a strong background in early childhood development and are trained in First Aid and Infant and Child CPR.

SPCNS prides itself in the quality of its care and the individualized attention offered to each child. Low student to teacher ratios ensure that the children will receive the nurturing and attention they need and deserve.
