To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, CNS is proud to operate a mostly outdoor program on our beautiful and expansive grounds for the 2020 - 2021 school year.

To support outdoor learning, CNS is offering two sessions during the 2020 - 2021 school year: fall (mid-September through Thanksgiving) and spring (March - June). Our school will remain closed during the winter months.

*For the 2021-2022 school year, we plan to reinstate our typical school-year program running September to June. The outdoors will continue to be an integral component of our play and inquiry-based curriculum.

CNS remains committed to offering a flourishing early childhood program throughout the pandemic, and relies on the collective support, collaboration, and dedication of all members of the school community to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone.


We inherently believe that childhood should be celebrated: it is our greatest hope that CNS continues to be a place where that is able to happen safely and joyfully!
