Our Story

Inspired by a love of children, and a belief that childhood should be a journey and not a race, a school teacher set out in 1959 to realize a dream. With limited resources and funding, she opened what would become known as the Lollipop Day Nursery School and Day Camp.

This family-owned and operated preschool has since passed into the hands of the founder’s son, James Angelillo, his wife Kara, and his daughter Lorraine. They continue to carry forth the tradition begun by his school teacher-mother over fifty years ago. They now cater to the second and third generation of many families.

A Strong Foundation

Years has proven that the right people, with the right training and dedication, make all the difference in the tender early years of a young child. Today, Lollipop School’s reputation as the premier early-childhood facility in the Pascack Valley is well-known.

Teachers are carefully screened, and all have four-year degrees with education certification from accredited colleges.
