What is CCNS?

At Cupertino Co-op Nursery School, CCNS, parents work in partnership with the teachers to: 

- support their child’s experiences

- discover new approaches to child rearing and 

- re-examine their established parenting patterns. 

CCNS nurtures an atmosphere of appreciation and acceptance for adults and children. At Cupertino Co-op Nursery School, children as well as adults learn and grow together in an atmosphere of appreciation and acceptance. Adults deserve the  same respect, guidance and caring from each other and from the teacher as the children receive. 

Parents have direct influence in shaping the school. It is the hand in hand cooperation between the parents and the credentialed teachers that determines the total program each year. Many cultures and traditions are represented by our member families, thus exposing the children at a very young age to various differences and similarities between people.

Perhaps only during the precious preschool years will you be as able to involve yourself in your child’s education. To see if our school is the right fit for your family, please come visit our school. Ask questions of the current parents and observe the children.
