Run By The Bay 5K run/walk

Our mission is to provide high-quality early childhood education that emphasizes developmental learning, social relationships, family involvement and care for the environment. Guided by the values of inclusion and equity, the school aims to serve a diverse population in terms of socioeconomic status and cultural background and ability levels. The race dedicates all profits to the scholarship fund providing financial assistance to make attending HCNS available to as many families as possible.

This year we have tackled the hurdles of educating our youngest learners in the face of the pandemic. We have continued to provide fully in-person experiences. This comes with the need for additional supplies and increased staff hours to keep us operating safely and smoothly. We are so thankful for community support.
