CPNS was officially incorporated in 1961. CPNS has always been a play-based preschool. The child is encouraged to guide the course of their own day: whether it is outdoor play, having a snack whenever they're hungry, playing in the block room, creating something wonderful at the creation station or listening/making music in the music room. All of these doors are always open to each child, during the classes at CPNS. Play guides each child's daily learning at CPNS.
