About Us

Mission and Vision

Mission: To provide a joyful, play-based learning experience; to nurture all aspects of each child's development.

Vision: All children and families can flourish and do their best for themselves and their community.


UNOW provides a full-day program. We are open Monday through Friday, from 8 am until 6 pm


Our physical facilities are located in a red-brick building and include 6 classrooms, a large, indoor playroom and a kitchen. Lunch and snacks are provided for all classes, except for formula and baby food for the youngest children.

A large, fenced playground is shaded by tall trees and has gym equipment, swings, tricycles and an open field for active games. There is also a separate playground for the younger children under 2 years of age. The facilities are maintained by Princeton University.


UNOW was established in 1970 with the aid of Princeton University and the Central New Jersey Chapter of the National Organization for Women (N.O.W.). While UNOW is now an independent non-profit educational institution without formal affiliation with any organization, we retain the acronym to acknowledge our commitment to an equal-opportunity environment for children, free of sex-role stereotypes and from religious and racial prejudice.
