The highly regarded Presbyterian Nursery School, or Presby for short, has been nurturing and educating preschool children for more than 40 years. Located at the First Presbyterian Church of Fairfield, Connecticut, Presby provides a warm, stimulating environment where each child’s unique qualities are recognized and positive self-esteem and compassion are developed. The teachers and curriculum encourage the social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth of each child. Presby principles are based on respect, honesty, trust and caring. Presby maintains a strong relationship with the area public school systems in order to prepare children for a successful transition to kindergarten.
♥ I am so happy that we found this school for our daughter . We moved here from New York and found Presbyterian Nursery school . My daughter has grown so much in her vocabulary, recognizing letters and numbers , and learning to write letters . The teachers and staff do an amazing job and are all very nice and helpful. ~ Presby Parent
♥ Today was the best day ever! ~ Presby 4 year-old
♥ Simply put, walking into Presby is like getting a warm hug. The teachers and staff are so caring and loving to our children, and so wonderful to us parents! The teachers give our children the perfect combo of learning appropriate to age, along with a sense of warmth, safety, love and fun! I have been a “Presby mom” since 2010 when my oldest was in the 3’s. My youngest is now in the 3’s, and I continue to be so happy with everything about Presby. It is a wonderful place and a great learning environment. The teachers and staff really put their hearts into everything they do with our children, and it shows. There are also so many special celebrations that all family members are invited to throughout the year, and those memories are priceless! Presby has been a gem to us. I truly feel like they are part of our extended family. It is a very special place. ~Presby Parent
♥ Hi Presby! So, I just wanted to say that a few parents came over to my house whose children all go to different nursery schools. They all were impressed and amazed by the scope and creativity of our daughter’s art projects which apparently stood out in huge contrast to what comes home from their own child’s preschool. They are really that great. My husband and I also continue to be astonished by the ingenuity and beauty of the projects that our child brings home. We appreciate all the planning and prep work that goes into facilitating such artistry! This is just one example of skills/experiences that She is gaining at school that she would not from being at home. Thank you very much. We love it all! ~ Presby Parent
♥ Presby has touched our hearts forever. My daughter had a hard time adjusting at the beginning of the school year and we decided to look for another school and were blessed enough to have found Presby. My daughter immediately felt comfortable and my shy girl truly blossomed at Presby. Everyone at Presby has a special place in our hearts and I forever grateful for all they have done for us. ~ Presby Parent
♥ We absolutely LOVE Presbyterian Nursery School! Presby is a “play based learning” nursery school with lots of fun things for children to explore. In addition to dress up, sensory tables, etc. they have a wonderful arts and crafts and music program, they practice “writing w/o tears”, the children “write” poems and recite them, they make beautiful picture boards that you’ll want to hang up forever (they take lots of pictures and give you copies!), fun field trips, etc. The setting is perfect-big, bright, clean, colorful rooms with windows but most importantly they really do a terrific job helping children socialize and become kindergarten ready. The teachers care about the children and their families and friendships formed during those years are some of our most treasured ones today.~ Presby Parent
♥ PNS was our second home for 6 years. My children have been out of nursery school for years now and still have wonderful memories of the staff and their daily preschool activities/routines. Presby is welcoming, nurturing, and provides a solid social and academic foundation for Kindergarten. We truly miss interacting with this “extended family!~ Presby Parent
♥ Presbyterian Nursery School is the best place for the early education of our kids. I am so grateful my son had a chance to be part of this school. He could not wait to go to school every day and was very disappointed during weekends since there was no school. The staff is the extension of your family! They just put so much work to make learning fun and prepare the kids for kindergarten. We miss everybody a lot and looking forward to revisit soon! ~ Presby Parent
