Welcome to the Children’s Community School, a learning community that honors and empowers children to engage their whole selves in education. Our students engage their bodies, minds, and emotions to make meaning, form relationships, and develop an understanding of themselves as active members of a community.

We serve children 2–5 years old from September through July. We offer a variety of schedules for part- and full-time enrollment. Children may attend 2, 3, or 5 days a week from 8:30 to 12:30 or 5 days a from 8:30 to 2:30. We also offer an after-care program until 4:30 each day.

Find out more about who we are and our approach to teaching and learning. For information about enrolling your child in our programs, see Prospective Families.
