Welcome to the Palmer School!

The Palmer School is a private, non-profit educational facility of the Bernardsville United Methodist Church. The school has been in operation since September, 1982 and is licensed by the State of New Jersey, Division of Youth and Family Services.

The School is also one of the few child care institutions nationally accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs (a division of the NAEYC.) The school was reaccredited in July 2017 and our accreditation will run through October 2022.

This Website is designed to provide an initial introduction to the School, our program philosophy and general procedures. To find out more about how the Palmer School can address the needs of your child(ren) and family, please call or email us  to schedule an appointment for a visit.
