Who We Are…

The Dalton Cooperative Nursery School (DCNS) has been a community institution committed to providing quality Early Educational Programing for young children in our community since 1969. We are fully licensed through the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care as a group preschool program and serve to enhance the natural growth and development of children from 2 yrs. 9 mo. to 5 yrs. old.


About our Program…

DCNS strives to provide a caring, safe and supportive environment for children and their families.

The goal of our Program is to create a developmentally appropriate, nurturing and stimulating curriculum in which children of varying back-grounds, interests and abilities can develop meaningful social, emotional, cognitive, and physical learning experiences.


This summer, The Dalton Cooperative Nursery School is pleased to begin a new chapter in our long history with two exciting announcements!

  • Our program is now under the guidance of a dedicated, new Administrative Director/Lead Teacher who has over 20 years of professional experience partnering with children and families in our area.
  • We are also excited to announce that we’ll be moving over the summer to our new location within the Dalton CRA. The move is a big leap forward, allowing us to improve both our curriculum and increase community connections.


We are currently accepting applications for admissions for the 2016-2017 academic year.
