General School Mission

We are proud to be a National Association for the Education of Young Children accredited preschool program. As part of the NAEYC accreditation process ACNS continues to provide a warm, supportive and well-established preschool program. Our program is carefully designed to help a child to become a self-confident, sensitive, independent and happy person. In order to facilitate their growth and to properly structure the assimilation of skills in the social, motor and cognitive areas, the children are grouped developmentally. Parent involvement adds to the richness of our environment designed for fun and learning.
