Dalton Cooperative Nursery School

A great place to grow and learn!

DCNS building_smSince 1969, the Dalton Cooperative Nursery School, Inc. (DCNS) has been a community service for three and five year old children of Dalton and the surrounding communities. The school is not a child-care program, but is an educational supplement to the home environment, offering opportunities for experiences that promote social, physical, emotional and intellectual growth.

We offer open enrollment to children from two-years-nine-months through five-years of age. We believe that the years from three to five are of vital importance. At these ages, children are ready and eager to learn. Our nursery school can provide first-hand experiences to enrich the child’s background and further stimulate his or her desire to learn. Our program is committed to providing a warm, nurturing environment and developmentally appropriate curriculum that will allow each child to grow and develop at their own rate. This curriculum is designed to help each child grow socially, physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Our school is located in the First Congregational Church of Dalton building, though we are not affiliated with the church.

DCNS offers a unique opportunity to be involved in your child’s education. Read more about the cooperative model.
