The mission of the Community Nursery School of Wilton (CNSW) is to prepare each child
to lead a resourceful, resilient and responsible life within a supportive community
teachers and families.
In fulfillment of this mission, Community provides a nurturing environment that incorporates
playful learning in the development of the life skills children need to become successful
individuals and to generate meaningful friendships. For each child, we encourage
a spirit of free inquiry, a rich and creative imagination, and compassion for others;
enabling students to understand, respect and navigate the world. A sense of community
is a broader goal found in many aspects of the school; becoming a community of friends
within our classrooms is considered just as important as the community of families
that develops through the various school related activities and stewardship roles
in which parents can actively participate.
Community provides the best foundation for enhancing preschoolers’ social confidence, resourcefulness and love of learning; so children are empowered to take on new challenges and to make their own marks in the community at large.
