child on slideOur boys have thrived at RCNS! Their days are filled with learning, play and fantastic creative arts and crafts! The RCNS teachers are instrumental in our boys' development through their nurturing and tenderness. Our son Jackson was at RCNS for three years and his little brother Cole currently attends!

My daughter and I have had such a pleasant, wonderful learning experience with you, Michelle, and your teachers. I am so thrilled to pick her up each day. She is so happy and can't wait to tell me all she has learned!

- Erin Oxenham / San Anselmo, CA

Our daughter loved RCNS! Michelle and her staff provide a supportive and structured growth environment that is essential for little ones starting on their life journey. As we get ready for Kindergarten, we are reminded of the great foundation that our daughter built at RCNS.

Ross Cottage Nursery School provides a loving, safe and nurturing environment for toddlers and young children. Michelle runs a professional and efficient program for families, including a sweet and inspiring space for kids to play and learn, a regular schedule of sharing, art , and science projects, and a daily hot lunch!! Our son developed a loving friendship with Michelle and her staff and felt very safe and happy at Ross Cottage Nursery School.

Group of kidsWhere do I begin to describe all of the wonderful things about RCNS? From the time my daughter, Heidi and I walked through the door until the time she graduated, we were impressed and enchanted with the environment and loving care she received. Michelle, Kerri and Christa cared for her like she was their own!

And it was a delight to watch her run into the school door there every day and return to us with more vocabulary words, and proud works of art. She developed an ability to use good manners and to share. Also she learned the basic numerics and spelling! The Ross Cottage Nursery School will always hold a special place in our hearts and I will continue to always be grateful for those years and I recommend it to all of my closest friends!

- Mary Catherine and Tripp Heller / San Anselmo, CA

Our Daughter had a wonderful experience at Ross Cottage Nursery School! She felt very safe and secure and blossomed during her time there! She would even sing songs about how much she loved the teachers, Michelle, Kerri and Christa! We will continue at RCNS again in 15 months with our second child!

- Mercedes and Mark Henderson / Kentfield CA

Ross Cottage Nursery School is truly a home away from home for my son. The teachers are warm, loving and patient. The environment is engaging and
comforting. It has been a perfect transition for my less than outgoing child who has gained confidence and independence from his time at RCNS.

- Danielle Notti / Greenbrae CA

RCNS will always hold special memories for us, as both of our children attended school there. The nurturing, fun loving environment made it an extension of our family! Our girls always enjoyed their "school days" there!

- Christina Scarborough / Ross CA

Our 4 year old daughter loves attending RCNS! The teachers are great, the environment is ideal, and the program offers the perfect combination of social, educational, and creative learning - all in a playful environment that allows our daughter to have fun!

We looked at a number of programs in Marin County and are very glad we found Ross Cottage Nursery School.

Quality is in the details, and this was the perfect fit for us, with flexible scheduling options, a healthy lunch provided, lots of indoor and outdoor playtime, in a beautiful environment.

This program provided an opportunity for social, educational and creative learning. Our daughters' wall is filled with a steady stream of art projects that she loves and enjoys!

It has been a wonderful number of years for our daughter at Ross Cottage Nursery School! Thanks in part to her great teachers, she is now potty trained, knows her letters and numbers, has learned new sharing and social skills, and genuinely looks forward to her days at school.

- Cole and Jennifer Bybee / Greenbrae, CA
