Programs Offered

preschool programs for 4 year olds, 3 year olds and 2 year olds in Norwood Mass

Our programs are designed to provide challenging and age- appropriate activities for children. We strive to help each child experience positive growth in all facets of development, including social, physical, emotional, and intellectual. Teachers in each classroom guide children through the developmental stages, honoring interests, abilities, and unique learning styles along the way.

At the Norwood Cooperative Nursery School, we welcome and encourage visits from prospective parents. Exploring preschool settings, and becoming familiar with the differences implicit in various programs, are important steps in determining the best match for your child and your family. In order for the Director to be available to guide you through the school and answer your questions, we recommend an appointment. We also ask that you visit without your child at this early stage, so that you are free to make your observations without distraction.

Located in Norwood, Massachusetts NCNS proudly serves families residing in the surrounding Boston area suburbs such as Norwood, Westwood, Walpole, Dedham and Medfield.
To obtain further information on any of the programs or to schedule an appointment, please call the school at 781-769-3376 or call the registrar, Shauna Parkinson at 781-769-3376 or email registrar@ncns.org
