Devoted to nurturing children ages 3-5 in a secure and happy environment.

Welcome to Community Nursery School!

CNS is a state-licensed preschool devoted to nurturing children ages 3-5 in a secure and happy environment.

"Our principal goal is to bring children's social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development into balance using age-appropriate skills and activities. We work to help every child feel secure and valued, to build a strong sense of self-esteem, and to practice empathy and care for others."
