Thank You

From The Co-Founders of

The Giving Nest

Thank you for your interest in our school, one that was created over twenty years ago with care and love. Our dream was to create a school that offered a high quality and well-rounded educational program but at affordable rates to young families like ourselves, each having 3 young children. In September 1990 we opened The Giving Nest Preschool & Kindergarten in North Plainfield with 56 students and 10 staff members. Twenty plus years later our "Nest" has grown! We now have four other locations in Somerset County - Watchung, Martinsville, Bridgewater, Warren and newest location, Pluckemin. We believe our success is the result of three things. First as co-founders we have stayed true to our commitment and remain an intricate part of our school; secondly, our dedicated staff and low turnover (a few have been with us since we opened and most have been with us for at least 10 years); and lastly our supportive and wonderful families who believe in what we do. We want to thank you for your interest in our school. We continue to love what we do! Children are a gift ~ they fill our classrooms with laughter, innocence, and a zest for learning. Children keep you young and definitely keep you smiling! We look forward to “showing off” our schools, so call today for a tour of the location nearest you, and most importantly, we hope you will be part of our Giving Nest families. 


Most Sincerely, 

Debbie Hannon and Mary Sue Frank
