Mercer Street Friends Preschool located at 1201 West State Street in Trenton has been successful in helping parents prepare their children to transition from preschool to kindergarten for more than 30 years. Each year, 90 children receive academic instruction and learn social skills helping them feel confident in their ability to do new things. They learn how to adjust to time away from their parents while sharing with their friends and learning to eat healthy meals with a variety of choices. Families benefit from all Mercer Street Friends’ programs including the Food Bank, Parenting and Adult Services and our Community Schools.

The Preschool is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of the children we teach.
