General School Mission

"The primary focus of Community Nursery School is meeting the emotional, social, educational, and physical needs of each child.
Our teachers foster a positive self-image by promoting independence and self-confidence, by providing opportunities to explore interests and abilities within a group, and by encouraging curiosity, creativity and individuality.
