Welcome to Our School

Northbrook Community Nursery School (NCNS) believes that children learn best through play. We engage children in our creative curriculum through the use of water/sensory tables, music, imaginative play, storytelling, open-art experiences, children’s literature and playtime on the school’s playground.
