The Davis Community Church Nursery School (DCCNS) is a nonprofit program open to all children between the ages of 15 months and 5 years, who are ready for a group experience.

Our school is part of the overall educational and outreach effort of the Davis Community Church and is open to families of all faiths. As a cooperative, the success of the school has been built on strong parent participation both in the classroom and in the total program development.

The Church provides classroom facilities, utilities, custodial services, and office support at no expense to the school. Registration fees and tuition are used for teachers' salaries and other direct classroom support. DCCNS is licensed by the California State Department of Social Services and follows its regulations as well as the policies set by the school's Board of Directors.
