For 50 years, Norwood Cooperative Nursery School’s primary mission has been to foster a love of learning and create a nurturing environment in which children learn skills and make new friends through play. We achieve this goal through the cooperation of our talented, enthusiastic teachers and involved, caring parents. Children leave NCNS confident and prepared for social and academic success throughout their school years.
The philosophy of our preschool program begins with the recognition that each child is a unique person, developing at his/her own pace toward the fulfillment of his/her own promise and abilities. The environment is critical in providing a safe, yet challenging, space for the child to experience positive growth in all facets of development, including social, physical, emotional and intellectual. Our preschool promises to guide each child through the developmental stages, honoring interests and abilities along the way while recognizing children’s unique learning styles and applauding each child’s special gifts. No two children will chart the same course!
A cooperative means working together to benefit all; therefore parental involvement is an essential part of our program. Learn more about the advantages of the cooperative experience!
