Our Story

Chenango Nursery School (CNS), founded in 1948, is a non-profit, cooperative school for children in the Hamilton, NY area.  CNS has grown and changed through the years in response to the needs of the community.  CNS is known for its warm and welcoming community where children and families make life long friends.

It remains a fully cooperative effort of concerned parents, as it has been from the beginning, a corporation owned and operated by the parents of the children attending the school.  A Board of Directors, comprised of parents and community members, establishes school policies and programs.  A Parent Advisory Committee also exists to supply input and promote participation in CNS activities.  Parental involvement is essential to the well being of the school and its children.
