This fall, we are excited to be celebrating our 55th year at Concord-St. Andrew's Cooperative Nursery School. Whether you dropped your child off at nursery school for the last time 30 years ago or just last year, we are so thankful to you for being a part of this strong and nurturing community.

In the past years, many things have changed at Concord-St. Andrew's. We have a brand-new "Big Muscle Room," for playing on cold and rainy days, and a thoroughly updated "Paint and Play Room," where our children create and get inspired. We've updated our lunch bunches and now offer new programs like Spanish and Drama. We've refreshed classrooms and our entryway, where a beautiful new mural greets our children every morning. But many things have stayed the same as well—we still pride ourselves on the high caliber of our teaching staff, many of whom have been with us for over 20 years. And we stand strong in our belief that a cooperative nursery school creates a truly unique and supportive environment for both children and parents.

This year we are launching our Concord-St. Andrew's Cooperative Nursery School Annual Fund for the first time. We take a lot of pride in our school, and we want to continue to support our hard-working teachers, offer state-of-the-art facilities and programs, and keep tuition accessible and affordable to our families. Today, that tuition alone does not cover the full cost of providing the quality of care we make available to our children. We would love for you to support our efforts with a contribution to the fund, no matter how big or small.

For more information on the Annual Fund, please click the tab in the upper right of this page.

We've got big plans for CSACNS, and we hope you will join us by investing in the children who will follow in our footsteps. If you'd like to stop by to see all of the improvements that have been made over the last few years, we'd love to see you. And be on the lookout for an invitation to our silent auction this spring! Thank you so very much for your support!

What is the Concord St. Andrew's Cooperative Nursery School Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund is a yearly opportunity through which individuals and families can support the growth of Concord-St. Andrew's Cooperative Nursery School.

Why should I give to the Annual Fund?
Your gift helps CSACNS to:
  • Maintain the high caliber of programs currently benefiting students
  • Launch new academic programs and extracurricular activities
  • Ensure CSACNS can attract and retain highly qualified and dedicated teachers
  • Expand our classroom capabilities and "lunch bunch" programs
  • Continue to offer scholarship programs for students who are unable to afford the tuition
What will my donation help to support?
Your donation to the CSACNS Annual Fund will go a long way to support the school's work on a daily basis. For example:
  • A donation of $55 would provide one month's worth of paint.
  • A donation of $100 would provide classroom toys and ride-on toys for outside play.
  • A donation of $250 would provide a compact crib for sibling sitting or yearly Vision and Hearing Screening for a class.
  • A donation of $500 would provide a playground refresh (e.g., fall wood chips, fall sand, spring sand)
  • A donation of $2500 would provide a scholarship for a 5-day 4-year-old student.
