Flexible programs, reasonable tuition

At FCNS we know the challenges families face and work to provide flexible programs and competitive rates for our community. We have three classes to meet your early childhood education needs:

Toddler/Preschool: children ages 2.0 to 2.11 at the start of the school year

Preschool: children ages 3.0 to 3.11 at the start of the school year

Pre-K: children ages 4.0 and above who are eligible for Kindergarten the following September

FCNS School-year classes

September to June classrooms

A child is eligible for a class by their age as of August 31st. Children do not transition into the next class by their age but by how they will matriculate into elementary school.


Different learning environments

We have 5 acres of land that includes outdoor classrooms, hiking trails, a pond and streams. We have a large fenced in playground as well as an indoor space that we only use when it is dangerous to be outside. 


Nature-based

Our program facilitates learning through exposure to nature and nature-based activities. All of the classes go outside EVERY day in all kinds of weather (unless it is dangerous to do so). 

Low teacher: student ratios

We have 1 educator to 4 or 6 kids. Classroom sizes range from 7 children to 12 children with 2 educators per class.


4-Hour & 6-Hour Classes

Our 4-Hour classes are 9AM to 1PM. The 6-hour classes are 9AM to 3PM.  We have Tues/Thurs, Mon/Wed/Fri and Monday to Friday class options. 


Play-based learning

Through play, children develop social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally, and gain the self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments.
