"A preschool for active minds and bodies"
Hampshire Cooperative Nursery School is located in Hanover, NH and has been serving families of NH and VT for over 50 years. HCNS offers 4 preschool programs, summer camp, and several extracurricular activities throughout the year for children 32 months to 5 years of age.
Our programs reflect the belief that young children learn best through play and exploration. Children explore science and math through nature, experience art and engineering through projects, and investigate the world and their role in it using imagination and creativity.
At HCNS, all children are encouraged to develop their unique selves and the capacity to connect with others through play and learning. They emerge from our programs eager to learn more, embracing of others, and empowered to share their gifts with the world.
Parents and guardians have the opportunity to participate more fully in their child's school experience at HCNS. The degree of involvement can range from restrained to heroic. By assisting with school activities, you have the opportunity to see your child in relation to his/her peers and watch them grow.
