Educating families since 1978
Canterbury Community Nursery School (CCNS) is a program that celebrates differences ~ cultural, ethnic, gender and ability, serving children ages 16 months to 5.5 years old.
CCNS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, and school administered programs.
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’s philosophy of educating children is based on the learning theories of Jean Piaget. He demonstrated that children learn best when they are experiencing the world around them through play. We view teachers, children, and families as partners in helping the whole child develop intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.
