On behalf of the Community Nursery School Board of Directors, it is with great pleasure that we announce Rachel Daniels as the next CNS Executive Director. Many know Rachel as a parent of four children, three of whom have been students at CNS. Rachel also comes to us with tremendous experience in Early Childhood education. She has previously held positions as a pre-K head teacher at the Downtown Children’s Center in St. Louis, MO and a 4th grade teacher in the Bronx, NY. Her education includes a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from James Madison University and a Masters in Elementary Education from Mercy College (NY).

Those of us who have worked with Rachel at CNS, where she has served on the Board of Directors and as a leader of the Imagination Station, or in the community, where she serves as a Girl Scout Troop Leader, know that she is a thoughtful and engaging leader with strong communication skills. Her personal and professional experiences demonstrate her commitment to the play-based, cooperative foundation of our school. The Board is confident and enthusiastic about her addition to CNS. We look forward to welcoming Rachel to the Executive Director position.
