Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The program for the children is based upon the knowledge that work and play, fun and learning take place simultaneously as the child makes contact with the world around him. Children accomplish learning through investigation, experimenting, taking initiative, making choices and interacting with other children. Through play, children test facts, define and redefine human relationships. Through the use of a rich variety of creative materials, they explore the world of creativity and imagination. Through trips taken to places of interest, and visits from a variety of outside instructors, children develop a broader knowledge of their community and a better sense of themselves as members within a larger society.

CCNS believes that children develop best in a climate of caring, respect and trust. Our skilled teachers provide each child with an educational experience that increases his or her feeling that the world is a good place in which to live, and helps each child to develop a sense of self worth. The teachers at CCNS are nurturing people who strive to maintain the integrity of the individual while at the same time leading children toward an awareness of and responsibility to others.
