RCNS Open House Success!

by Miranda Lexmond, President RCNS

[dropcap]R[/dropcap]Richmond Co-operative Nursery School – RCNS had a fantastic turn out to their annual Open House, held on Tuesday April 10th. Dozens of new and returning families had the chance to tour the school and ask questions about the Toddler and Preschool programmes.

Many families brought their little ones along to explore both the space and some of the activities that will be available to them when they start in the fall. For many, it was their first introduction to a school setting – with their very own cubbies, a circle room for stories and calendar, and, of course, the cool toys! There was no end to excitement!

The Director, Krista Marginson, was on hand to help explain the different programs offered, describe what a typical day would look like, and, perhaps most importantly, to put parents’ minds at ease.

If your family was unable to attend, don’t worry. Private tours and registration can still be arranged by contacting Amy at
