Established in 1965 as Community Nursery School, Community Preschool is a state licensed Christian child care center ​       sponsored by the Community United Methodist Church of Roselle Park. Educational activities, social experiences and           social interactions are based on a Christian perspective and an understanding that God loves each of us.



   "We love it here! The teachers truly love and care about the kids. Great sense of community among the school and 

    parents. Having switched our son temporarily to a large commercial preschool because of our work schedule, we

    learned that love matters! Luckily CPS started offering full day and aftercare soon after that and we were so happy

    to be able to stay with CPS."

       -Leo's mom

​​  "What a warm and loving environment! My son came here after originally attending another local preschool where he 

   was unhappy, nervous and anxious each day. We are so blessed to have found Community! My son is now sooo

   excited to go to school each day! He’s made friends, loves to talk about his day, and brings home the cutest little art

   projects! I can’t express how grateful I am to Community for embracing him. You have made this mama’s life so

   much easier. I’m eternally thankful!"

      -With gratitude, The Kaufmans ❤️


   "My son is in the 3 yr. old class. I am so thankful for the warm, caring, and professional staff at Community Preschool.
    I thought my son would have a hard time going off to preschool because he is so shy, but CPS made him feel as if he

    was at home with their warm welcome! I am very thankful for that and so much more!"                                                    -Sincerely, Mary Beth

      Center Policy for Screening: All parents are going to indicate verbally at drop off that their child does not have a

      temperature or covid-19 symptoms. If a parent is unable to verify this information, center staff will screen the child.

      All staff will self-screen upon entrance. MASKS ARE now optional both inside our building, and when 

      outside (during our school hours).
