About CNS

CNS has been providing academic and developmental preparation within a nurturing, inclusive spiritual environment for over 70 years.

Founded in 1950, CNS has unparalleled history of providing academic and developmental preparation within a nurturing, inclusive spiritual environment.  Staying current with the latest innovations while maintaining the proven methods has built a well-deserved reputation. Enrollment offices at Laurel Hall, Campbell Hall, Wesley, and Buckley, as well as LAUSD annually embrace CNS graduates.


"First Christian Church of North Hollywood, since its beginning, has been a place for families to be able to learn, grow, and play. Our denomination - the Christian Church (DOC) - has always valued education and critical thinking. This is why Christian Nursery School is a place where children learn about such things as the fruits of the Spirit - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. It is for this reason that many families from a variety of backgrounds feel comfortable sharing life with our community. It is a safe place for all!" 

                                                                          Rev. Dr, Jonathan B. Hall, Senior Pastor

We believe children:

  • deserve love, guidance, and respect for their individuality.

  • grow in an environment that supports physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development

  • learn at their own rate through development hands-on experiences.

Our goal with each student is to:

  • Encourage language and listening skills

  • Promote positive interactions, a healthy self-image and strong self-esteem.

  • Encourage creativity and imagination

  • Develop life-long love of learning.
