- Board Members: Turlock Nursery School has a dedicated board made up of parent volunteers. This elected board meets monthly to manage the day to day functions of the school and to make sure we are providing a rich learning environment that is in accordance to our mission statement.
- Parents: Because we are a parent participation nursery school, parents are also involved in the day to day operations. These include: assisting the teachers in class, classroom management, cleaning and student safety. As a TNS parent you are part of our school day and an important part in the connection between home and school.
