Family Involvement & Community Relationships. As a CCNS parent, you may be surprised by the joy and benefits your new found involvement in the Cumberland/North Yarmouth community brings.
CCNS is a community based co-operative preschool located in Cumberland, Maine. It is designed for families looking to be a part of their child's preschool experience. Our teachers are assisted each day by 1 parent helper. Parents are an integral part of their children's first school experience, as well as a unique and essential part of our programs.
Parent helpers not only assist the teacher, but are encouraged to share their individual interests and talents. Parental involvement not only makes our co-op the unique educational environment that it is, but also helps parents discover new ways to encourage children to thrive in a classroom setting. Your child's development will flourish and you'll have confidence knowing that CCNS is truly providing your child with the experience and tools for a successful transition to Kindergarten.
Focus is placed on developing a connection between students and the communities in which they live. Special guests are invited to share their unique insight and perspective, and students regularly attend field trips and events outside the classroom, including libraries, musical events and nature walks.
CCNS is run by a membership-elected board. The membership is comprised of all the parents of the students, and each member is required to serve on a committee such as enrollment, fundraising, yearbook, etc.
Families with other small children should not feel discouraged from joining CCNS, due to childcare issues. Many families, even with babies, are part of the program and often trade-off babysitting duties with other members who have a similar need.
