Testimonial 1 (Bernice)

“We enrolled our daughter at CNS in the middle of the school year after we relocated here from the west coast. The staff, parents, and even the three-year-olds have been so warm and welcoming. Our daughter absolutely loves it, CNS really is a special place!” -Bernice, 3’s Parent

Testimonial 2 (Jocelyn)

“We really wanted Campbell’s first school to be nurturing and full of play. We found that at Colonial, where it feels like a family and not just a place I drop my daughter off each day. I know her teachers, her friends and their parents because the co-op only works if we come together.” – Jocelyn, 3’s Parent
