RCNS - A Solid Gold Structure for the entire Family Loving, caring, playful, creative heard that before? Right, that s what they all tell you. This thing however is the real deal. From a very high starting point, RCNS every day adds the expected and unexpected and gets even better with every week you spend here. With no hyperbole, we can say that RCNS is quite likely the best all-around Family Investment we have made in a long time. No teachers on Cell Phones, no unhealthy food. For us, heaven must look something like this classroom. Is it too small? No, it s a small people s world! Just shrink to the size of your kid for a second. Make sure however your Kid has 4 Wheel Drive. It will literally own Rustic Canyon Park for after school playdates with the Gang. On top of all that RCNS is as practical as it can get: It runs from 9 am -2 pm! What you get is a cult favorite that is anything but mainstream and an inspiring and very international mix of parents committed to play full out.
You don't find this kind of environment easily, but when you do it makes you feel so good! Both my children attended the school and loved it. The teachers are so loving and treat them with a beautiful nurturing spirit. I was as excited about my stay parents days as my kids! Being part of a coop is magical for children and parents. The school fund raisers are a riot !! I truly feel I've made some of the best friends through the wonderful like minded parents. The school is located in the heart of rustic canyon, a hidden gem in Santa Monica. I cannot recommend this school enough for your young child to be a part of. We all miss it dearly.
We are now on our 2nd year with our 2nd child in this school. There is a warmth and sincerity found with the teachers and fellow parents that are second to none. It is such an amazing nurturing environment for our little ones to be a part of. This school is a true treasure.
This hidden gem of a school is pure magic. My daughter had an idyllic time here where she was loved and nurtured daily. Every day something is celebrated, large or small. The teachers are WONDERFUL and they really know each child intimately. Being a co-op parents are required to get involved and personally I will remember each day I spent here for a long time.
Both of my kids went here and had a great experience. My son graduated last year and he still talks about it. What I really enjoyed was the great sense of community. It is really like having an extended family.
Rustic Canyon Coop Nursery School is like an oasis for early learning in a beautiful park setting. The search for the perfect west side preschool can be confusing and overly complicated. RCNS keeps everything very simple. Visit the school on a Monday morning. Apply by the deadline. Have a laid back conversation as an interview. It's just about the kids. The class is small so that each child and what makes them special is addressed with love and care. Be surprised about what you learn about yourself and even more about your child as a volunteer parent. Amazing!
