For over 70 years CVPNS has been providing families with multi-level learning experiences that stimulate and enrich parenting skills while supporting the development and self-worth of children. This play-based learning program fosters exploration, resourcefulness, social-emotional development and critical thinking skills. The environment and program content is designed to foster cooperation, friendships and community involvement. The guiding philosophy of CVPNS are “the Four R’s”: helping parents and children be Responsible, Respectful, Resourceful, and Resilient. CVPNS also embraces the four R’s for our environment: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot (composting). CVPNS is committed to green practices, protecting the health of preschoolers and the planet. As a co-op preschool, parents participate in the education of the children, under the guidance of the Directors. A weekly workday, a school job, event participation, and parent education classes are some of the many ways that parents enrich and enable this program. Our program is open to parents and their children who turned three or four on or before December 2. 

With respect to Covid-19 or other health concerns, CVPNS follows all local and federal health requirements.
