Canterbury Community Nursery School provides quality programs for children ages 16 months to 5 1/2 years. The school serves over 100 families, understanding the importance of meeting the developmental needs of the whole child.

Canterbury Community Nursery School (CCNS) is a program that celebrates differences ~ cultural, ethnic, gender and ability.

We are a not-for-profit, secular preschool where all children are recognized and respected as unique individuals with varied learning styles and developmental needs.

Canterbury is licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia, Department of Social Services, and accredited by the National Association of Child Care Professionals. (NAC)

The school is staffed by qualified and dedicated professionals, directed by Mia White.

The teachers participate in monthly staff meetings and attend local and national conferences to enhance professional development.
