St. Ignatius Loyola Day Nursery

Services Provided: 
Day Care Programs

St. Ignatius Loyola Day Nursery is a home away from home where faith, love and knowledge form the cornerstones of a rigorous child-centered curriculum. Founded in 1910 and expanded five years later thanks to the patronage of a local parishioner, Nicholas Frederick Brady, it served for over 70 years as a resource for families with working mothers and home for the Sisters of Bon Secour, the Sisters of Charity and the Dominican Sisters of Sparkill.

The school transitioned to lay administration and staff in the late 1980s. It also created its half- day program, expanded its preschool curriculum and embarked on renovation projects to make the best use of the building’s historic spaces. As the school evolves, it remains true to its original mission of service to children and families of all backgrounds.
