In addition to its religious education programs, First Parish in Cohasset owns and operates the Carriage House Nursery School (CHNS) in our historic Parish House located on Cohasset Common.

CHNS is a private, non-profit, non-religious school dedicated to meeting the needs of younger children from 18 months to 5 years of age. It was started 40 years ago in response to the pressing need for quality early education for the children of the local area. Today almost 100 children are enrolled in various sessions.

CHNS is inspected and licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care and is proud to be one of the first preschools in the area to earn accreditation from the NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children). Eleven teachers from Cohasset and surrounding communities work under the leadership of Director Lynn Fahie to provide a safe, welcoming, and innovated environment for learning and growth.

Children of First Parish members are given priority in enrollment.
