Support Us


In the past thirty nine years CNS has provided a unique educational experience for hundreds of preschoolers. We often get visits by alumni students and parents alike that share how much they benefitted from their experiences in the school.

Please support our commitment to early childhood education by clicking the donate button:

Your donation will touch more than our students alone:

  • In the spring of 2014, CNS hosted a public lecture series at Portland’s Parkside Neighborhood Center addressing affordable and accessible preschool to all.
  • Since 2011, CNS has developed a loving relationship with our neighbors at Seventy-Five State Street, an independent and assisted-living facility. Monthly the facility’s residents welcome our students for visits making for wonderful intergenerational experiences.
