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.

NCNS is a non-profit preschool founded in 1952 and is not affiliated with any religious organization. The preschool has consistently maintained accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
