We are looking forward to celebrating our 50th year educating young children and working with their families. 

Canton Community Nursery School (CCNS) is a non-profit organization that was chartered in 1969 by a group of enthusiastic Canton residents to provide a quality preschool program for children ages three and four.  We continue to thrive today with support from the wonderful families and friends of our students.

At Canton Community Nursery School,  we actively encourage parental involvement.  It makes our program strong and allows you to be directly involved in your child's early learning experiences.  The success of our program is due to cooperation between home and school.  A parent helper aids the staff in the classroom every day.  In addition, parents are encouraged to share their time and talents to whatever degree they feel comfortable.  Together we can provide a fun, loving, nurturing program that will prepare your child for their role as a "life-long learner."

The school is governed by a Board of Directors and is staffed with qualified professionals.The Board of Directors, which handles the business and administrative duties of the school, consists of the director, the staff and parent volunteers.

We welcome students from all area towns.  Our alumni are from Avon, Barkhamsted, Burlington, Canton, East Hartland, Granby, New Hartford, Simsbury and Winsted.  We celebrate diversity and provide an atmosphere where cooperation, sharing, and sensitivity flourish.
