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.
