Carlmont Parents Nursery School
CPNS is a parent participation, co-operative, play-based developmental preschool for children ages 2 to 5 years.
Over 50 Years of Experience.
Located in Belmont, CA, 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.
Our children’s program is designed to provide a gradual and smooth transition into formal education. When children learn at their own pace through guided exploration and experimentation, in a safe and loving environment, full of developmentally appropriate activities, their discoveries are boundless.
Open-ended exploration allows children time and space to develop skills by playing, tinkering, making mistakes, experiencing both success and failure, and reflecting on their own thinking.
Becoming the Best Parent You Can Be
In-Depth Parent Education
As a member of the Sequoia District Adult School, CPNS offers monthly seminars in child development and early childhood education, plus hands-on experience and coaching in the classroom. In addition, parents have almost unlimited access to a child development expert who knows both you and your child and can offer skilled advice and answer your parenting and education questions.
