CNS was founded on the belief that parents are a child’s first teacher and should be genuine partners in the educational process at school. Not only do we work to make a smooth transition from home to school, but we also aim to keep the connection ongoing through cooperation and communication. Parents are always welcome in the classroom, on field trips, and to help in improving the facilities at school, especially the garden and library. We also encourage parents to become involved in the decision making of the school, by attending board meetings and serving on committees. Parents are welcome to volunteer in any area where they have a particular interest or expertise.
