Welcome to First Presby! Our tradition in the community began with our founding over 50 years ago!

We have expanded through the years to serve children from nursery through pre-kindergarten in nine classrooms. We are located at the top of Greenwich Avenue, housed in both the beautiful First Presbyterian Church, and the storybook Nursery School building across the way.



FPCNS was founded on the belief that the first five years of a child's life are the most important ones.

At our school, we believe that exploration is the work of children. When they rush into class to play with puppets, they become storytellers, and they learn to negotiate with friends. When children update the calendar and daily weather, they become mathematicians and meteorologists. When children take turns serving snack, they learn independence and self-reliance. When children come to the table to color, they become artists as they develop their fine motor skills. Throughout each moment of the day, the children of First Presby are engaged, enriched and inspired.

Here at First Presby, we are passionate about inspiring your children. Our exceptional teachers create a rich, stimulating curriculum, individualized to meet the needs of the children. We are purposeful in following the Connecticut Early Learning Standards. These standards support children to be creative, be inquisitive, be flexible, be critical thinkers, be purposeful and reflective, and be social learners. In short, we want the children to develop a love of learning through experiences that are meaningful to them. Our teachers engage with our children so that they grow socially, emotionally, and cognitively.

We value our families, and we strive to create a sense of community with our joyful children, our nurturing teachers and our supportive families. Our families create life-long friendships, and remain close with each other long after they leave First Presby. Our graduates frequently visit to let us know how much they loved their time with us!

Join us for a tour. You will see for yourself that First Presby is a truly loving and nurturing school!

The First Presbyterian Church Nursery School strives to develop a love of learning in a nurturing, values-based environment through play and theme-based experiences that prepare each child socially, emotionally, and cognitively with readiness skills for a successful transition to kindergarten and life beyond.


The First Presbyterian Church Nursery School is a place filled with love, laughter and learning where children discover through play and participation in open-ended experiences, new concepts and skills. We encourage the spirit of community and the shared values of kindness and openness. Parents work together with teachers to support and enrich each classroom.


Schools are for children. All decisions, plans and programs should be designed in the children's best interest. We believe in a well rounded experience that develops the mind, body and spirit and encourages each child to develop to his/her fullest potential. Excellence, not perfection is our goal.
