We are a parent participation, co-operative, play-based developmental preschool for children ages 2½ to 5 years. Located in Belmont, and founded in 1961, we are a community of children, parents and teachers working together with the common goal of stronger, healthier families.
We believe that the well being of children, their senses of self, their values and their perspectives on the world are all greatly shaped by those charged with their care.
Thank you for your interest in our great school! Limited openings for '15-'16 are available now. We are currently accepting applications for classes or waitlists for the Fall 2015 year only. Please contact our Membership team at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a voicemail with your details at (650) 382-4155 to arrange a tour.
Registration for 2016-2017 will begin at Open House on February 6th, 2016.
Please keep the following in mind if you are considering our school:
The mission of CPNS is to offer a varied and exciting environment where children learn through play while moving freely about the school choosing their activities; each child is valued and respected for his or her own developmental needs; and adults develop positive and healthy parenting skills through class participation and ongoing parent education.
"Both my children thrived while they attended CPNS. The wonderful teachers, the amazing outside space, and the wide variety of things to do and discover inside made it an ideal preschool. The parent education component of the program was also invaluable to me and my family. I firmly believe CPNS made me a better parent and thoroughly prepared my children for grade school."Janet Hart, CPNS Parent, 1998-2004
"I had a terrific time at CPNS. I splashed in the water and played in the sand, rode bikes fast around the yard, made cookies for my birthday and ate delicious snacks. And at summer school... all we did was play, play, play! Best of all I made super friends like Marissa. I still remember I had a lot of fun at CPNS."Kevin, CPNS Alum at 9 years old
