First Presbyterian Nursery School offers a play-based program that follows the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards. The required areas of cognition, social/emotional growth, and physical development are woven into fun experimentation, exploration, and small group activities where children thrive. Our language and literacy, creative arts, mathematics, science, and social studies curriculum ensures our students are well prepared for kindergarten.

Additional highlights include daily music and weekly science classes—which often means “field trips” to the New Canaan Nature Center which is right next door.

Charm and a classic nursery school experience meet today’s curriculum standards at First Presbyterian Nursery School—where children play, laugh, learn, and grow with loving, experienced teachers.
