Profile: Rockville Community Nursery School (RCNS) is a cooperative, parent-owned preschool in which parents, teachers, and children participate together in an exciting and nurturing first-school experience. Parents can sign up to either volunteer in their child’s classroom or take on an administrative role for the school. We also offer enrolled families the chance to buy out (i.e., pay an additional fee) of their volunteering responsibilities.

Art, music, dance, and play fill our classrooms and outdoor spaces with the happy sounds of children learning. Our expert teachers provide tempting and developmentally appropriate opportunities through which each child grows at his or her own pace to a new maturity and sense of self-worth and self-direction.

At our wonderful preschool, parents and professional teachers cooperate to help our children develop an interest and joy in learning about themselves, others, and the world around them during these wonderful, formative early education years. By sharing our own time and talents, both in the classroom and in the administrative workings of the school, we parents show our children directly that we believe in the importance of their education. The exciting, varied school experience at RCNS is fun and enriching for children and parents together.
