History – First Christian Church of North Hollywood

Christian Nursery School (CNS) in North Hollywood


Few institutions of education can match the history and success of the Christian Nursery School at First Christian Church of North Hollywood. Founded in 1950, CNS has launched several generations of children with the academic and spiritual foundations to succeed. Learning doesn’t end with a diploma. The greatest gift we can give our children is a lifelong thirst for learning. That’s our goal.

CNS supports unparalleled academic and developmental preparations with the quiet presence of a nurturing, inclusive spiritual environment, respecting all faiths. First Christian Church of North Hollywood and it’s senior pastor Robert M. Bock have been deeply involved in the community, in education (Rev. Bock spent 16 years on the LA County School Board) and in various ecumenical partnerships (e.g. the Interfaith Food Pantry, operated jointly by 17 Christian and Jewish congregations in the San Fernando Valley) since the church was formed in 1924.

Founded by concerned parents who couldn’t find a pre-school that met their expectations, CNS has built a tradition of staying current with the latest innovations while maintaining the proven methods that built it’s well deserved reputation. Enrollment offices at Laurel Hall, Campbell Hall, Wesley, and Buckley, as well as LAUSD annually embrace CNS graduates.

The highest praise is the number of former students who return as parents, seeking the same nurturing environment they experienced. And it’s still here! “Opening young hearts and minds since 1950.”
