Welcome to Winnetka Community Nursery School!

For more than 65 years, caring, warmth, and educational excellence for young children have been the guiding principles of our school. 

 We offer half-day and full-day programs for children ages 2 though 6. WCNS is more than just a school, it is a community of parents, students and educators.  We encourage our parents to take an active role in the education and development of children. We believe that it is our responsibility as a school to provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of young children. Please take some time to explore our offerings, and if you have any questions, know we are happy to answer them.


 Please contact us to learn more about our school and schedule a visit.
