We are currently working on building a scholarship pool, our goal is for TCNS to be accessible to our community. Please ask if you need some financial assistance.

Where We Came From

In 1965, Tahoe Community Nursery School was founded by a small group of local moms. Little did they know then that the school would become a community icon and go on to nurture two generations of Tahoe’s children.

Our Mission
​Tahoe Community Nursery School provides a safe fun environment that nurtures lifelong learners as they become familiar with a classroom/group setting. Through a balance of play-based and structured activities, our teachers guide children through early learning with love and warm support. We focus on activities that build self-esteem, self- awarness, academic skill, and an appreciation for the place we live. We foster a love of learning, social confidence, sharing, and friendship. Our graduates start off on the right foot when they enter elementary school.
