Learn About The Philosophy We've Carried Out Since 1976

At the Growing Garden, our philosophy is to provide children with a safe, loving and learning environment. We believe once a child is provided this environment, they have the ability to build on all areas of development to include their social, emotional, academic and physical growth.  


The possibilities are endless when a child builds on their confidence and is willing to take risks and that is our goal. Our motto is "no two flowers bloom the same way" and we cater our program so every child can reach their full potential. Come let your child "grow in our garden." Contact us today.

We pride ourselves with quality staff and very low turnover. As a family-run business, we provide a working atmosphere that promotes and values our staff which in turn provides for your children.


We meet the qualifications of all licensed preschool programs in the State of New Jersey to include training and screening of all our staff. We look forward to meeting you and making you part of our extended family.

We have a reputation that covers a long tradition in childcare with the same ownership, the Trasmundi Family. Mary Ann is the owner and her two daughters, Mary Lynn and Kim, run the programs currently. We are both working moms with plenty of experience dealing with the needs of children and families.

Highlights of our wonderful nursery school:

  • Spacious Environment - We accept children from ages 2 to 6 years with a variety of half and full day programs with extended hours from 7am to 6pm. Our program offers classrooms that children move to throughout their daily schedule to include library, art, social play and gym.

  • Private Kindergarten Available - Our Forest Ave. location has a private kindergarten that offers small class size and low teacher-to-student ratio. This course greatly benefits the child that misses the cut-off date to go to regular kindergarten instead of waiting till the following year to go to school.
