Programs & Tuition

Core Programs

CPNS offers 4 core programs: two, three, four, and five day per week multi-age classes, held from August-June. Multi-age programs offer age flexibility with greater leadership and role modeling opportunities.

Each class consists of a balance of adult-led group experiences and long blocks of child initiated play.

All of our programs are co-op based, with mandatory 1x/week parent participation, yielding high adult to child ratios that benefit the children in numerous ways.

Pre-K Program

Our highly successful Pre-K program, taught by Teacher Lori, has been in existence for over 30 years. Rather than attempt to teach children the subjects they will be introduced to in kindergarten, we emphasize the readiness aspects of learning.

Through adult-directed play, children participate in large and small groups that concentrate on the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual skills needed for kindergarten. Pre-Kers begin and end their day with a large circle time with lunch, musical activities, story sequencing, and community visitors. They are encouraged to raise hands, wait turns, and problem-solve with peers.

Typically, our Pre-K program is attended in conjunction with the 4-day core class making the schedule 10:30-3:30 Monday-Thursday.
