San Marino Community Church Nursery School

Welcome to the San Marino Community Church Nursery School! We are very pleased that you have chosen to consider our school for your child’s early childhood experience. SMCCNS is a community of children, families, and teachers committed to learning and growing through a process of research and discovery. We aim to create a nurturing and stimulating environment in which children’s curiosity is respected, creativity is valued, and collaborations are supported.

Our hope is that during their time at SMCCNS and beyond, children will deepen their love of learning, develop a thoughtful awareness of themselves and others, and have the confidence to pursue their passions. Our curriculum may look like a lot of fun to a visitor—and it is. We invite you to take a tour and see what is happening at SMCCNS. Tours may be arranged by calling the school at 626-282-4186.

At SMCCNS, we are interested in a child’s intellectual growth. Through carefully planned activities and environments, both indoors and out, children are given time and space to create and grow side by side and on their own. In a new world with new guidelines, children are flourishing in their own space and with their own materials. With careful planning, set up, clean up and sanitizing measures, we are able to provide children with all that they need to learn and grow during this very important time in their development.

This is what outdoor play looks like during these crazy days here at SMCCNS. Physically distant, yet physically active, and interactive from a distance. Creative and fun. No more community sensory table activity, but rather individual sensory tubs for active exploration and discovery.

What We Do and Why We Do It

SMCCNS aims to provide a setting where children will thrive. We want to help enhance and develop their self-esteem, social skills, physical skills, and intellectual capacities. Here, we help students reach their full potential.
