Upper Falls Nursery School is located in The Emerson Community Center in Newton Upper Falls. The spacious, sunny classroom is divided into several areas to promote children playing in small groups, engaging in diverse activities such as blocks, art, sand and water, housekeeping, dress-up, writing table, light table, and play dough.

For part of every day, weather permitting, the children play outside on the playground equipment, basketball court, or ball field.

On days that are too cold or raining, the children play in the school in the full-size gymnasium.
