RCNS is a state licensed, Non-profit & Non Sectarian nursery school serving the families of Ringwood, Wanaque and surrounding communities for over 50 years. We are located at 490 Ringwood Ave. Wanaque. (Behind the Midvale United Methodist church at the corner of First Street and Laura Ave.) Since opening in 1962 we have taken enormous pride in the creative, fun and safe environment our teachers have created for our children. Please come on by and see for yourself. You make the difference! RCNS is considered a “Contemporary Co-Op”. Parent participation is always welcomed but is not mandatory. We differ from a “Traditional Co-Op” where parents are required to assist. This means you can make a difference in the quality of your child’s first educational experience. Parents volunteer to participate in a variety of ways. Most tasks require only a small amount of time. Some require once a year help, such as school photos; some are seasonal, such as the garden caretaker; and some require more involvement, such as President or Registrar. It is rewarding to have a real voice in your child’s early education! ┬áSmall groups with big ideas make their first time at school warm and friendly.
