NFCNS Families,

NFCNS will be closed for the balance of the 2019-20 school year in accordance with Governor Pritzker’s recent announcement in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Gap Camp will also be cancelled this year.
NFCNS remains committed to our community and families and we will be communicating directly with you further details about how this affects current registered students and programs.
Thank you for your continued patience and support as we navigate this unprecedented moment in our school’s history.








Northfield Community Nursery School

Since 1951, nurturing children 6 months to 5 years.

Families will tell you that Northfield Community Nursery School is a special place – you feel it as you walk in the door. Teachers, parents, caregivers and children smile and chat as they head down the hallway and settle into one of our four sunny classrooms. The day’s routines begin, providing a comfortable context as children connect with their friends and teachers and embrace the day’s opportunities. A cheerful buzz arises as conversation flows, imagination grows and learning begins to blossom. At NFCNS, we have a well-known tradition of supporting children’s development in a nurturing, play-based environment that encourages exploration, discovery and growth. Welcome to Northfield Community Nursery School.




Our curriculum is tailored to the children it serves, and reflects the best practices of early childhood education and development.


Our teachers are guides and supports, helping children navigate social relations and engage meaningfully with the sensory-rich, varied and open-ended materials and activities provided in the classroom.


We work together as a community to ensure that every child’s lifelong learning journey begins with joy and confidence.

The School has a very special sense of community.  My daughters have all benefitted from wonderful, caring teachers and a committed group of parent volunteers.  We have been so lucky!

Karen, NFCNS Parent
