For nearly 55 years, Wilmette Community Nursery School has been one of the premier preschools on the North Shore. Its play-based curriculum focuses on teaching young children in a way that makes school fun, while catering to their unique educational needs. Centrally located in downtown Wilmette, WCNS is built by the community for the community.

WCNS understands that life is hectic when you have young children, which is why we’re committed to making the most of your family’s preschool experience – from our convenient front door drop off to a variety of after-school activities for kids and parents, we have built a community within the community to help children prosper at preschool. Whether you’re looking for a Parent/Tot class, your first school experience or are in need of an enrichment program for your Kindergartner – WCNS has it all.
