MCNS was founded in the 1950s by a group of mothers from the Mamaroneck United Methodist Church. Our preschool is now nonsectarian, but remains in the original building where we started. MCNS is a parent cooperative, which means we are supported by an active group of parent volunteers. Parents assist in the classroom, provide healthy snacks for the children, make up our Board of Directors, and participate in community activities. MCNS is more than just a preschool, it is a loving community that is dedicated the future of our children. Many of our students have returned to enroll their own children and several of our current teachers began their education here at MCNS. We are now educating our third generation of local families.
