The Belmont Cooperative Nursery School provides a nurturing community grounded in a commitment to the Reggio Emilia educational philosophy and a cooperative model of family engagement.  BCNS fosters learning through play and values the strong partnership between children, teachers, and parents.  Inquiry, community building, and mutual respect are basic tenets that guide our daily practice as we set out to broaden the children’s sense of self through self-exploration, community collaboration and environmental stewardship.
