Raleigh Nursery School, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit child care center, licensed at a 5-Star Quality Rating by the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education (NCDCDEE), and Accredited by the National Association for Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
The child care center was founded in 1949 by the United War Mothers Chapter I; a group of strong women dedicated to helping to ensure the community would provide a safe nurturing place for children while women entered the workforce because men were fighting in war.
First Director and Teacher, Rosia D. Butler, continued to lead the school for the next 37 years. Our current Director Brenda High Sanders began leading the school in 1986.
From the grassroots beginnings in the historical Chavis Heights community to our new home in the historical Halifax Court (newly named Capital Park Community), we continue to provide rich experiences for children and support for their families.
