Brush Creek Nursery School in Santa Rosa (incorporated as Brush Creek Family Services) has been preparing children for a lifelong love of learning since 1959!


We know that you have lots of options when it comes to choosing a preschool for your child. So what makes Brush Creek Nursery School so special?  


BCNS ​is a private, nonprofit school supported by tuition and community fundraising. When the school opened, it was the first state-licensed nursery school in Santa Rosa. It was also one of the first Northern California preschools to become Nationally Accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children for its quality program.

We have a long, proud history of giving kids an excellent start!
