Putnam Indian Field School knows how important it is that the first school experience be happy and positive, building self-confidence and independence.

With extensive experience easing children’s transition from home to school, summer at PIFS is an easy first step into a school setting. All summer programs are staffed by caring and experienced professionals from the faculty and other early childhood programs. The facilities and grounds have been specifically designed for young children. The three-acre campus consists of wonderful play yards that are designed with each developmental level in mind and include swings and slides, climbing apparatus, play houses and natural forts, and plenty of open grassy areas for running and playing with friends.

Summer Programming

Beginning June 22nd, summer programming is available for children ages 2 to 6.

The one-week Smokey Bounders Adventure Camp (ages 5 and 6) is geared for children entering Kindergarten and 1st Grade and builds confidence and problem-solving strategies as children take on new challenges; develops team building skills through ropes courses and team games; encourages creativity through imaginative play; and fosters an appreciation of the outdoors.

Toddler Camp (age 2 by 12/31/20) prepares children for their first school experiences with a focus on sensory education and outdoor fun. The program’s goal is to overcome separation, introduce the rhythm of school, and create familiar faces, all of which help make the transition to school in September smooth and easy.

In the 3s and 4s Camp, children spend most of their days outside engaged in outdoor exploration, gardening, and using nature as a classroom.

About Putnam Indian Field School

Putnam Indian Field School is an independent, co-educational pre-school for toddlers through pre-kindergarten.

Our mission, at Putnam Indian Field School (PIFS), is to inspire confidence, curiosity, creativity and a sense of community and citizenship in every child we teach.

Established as the result of a merger in 1978 between two well-known Greenwich nursery schools, the school represents over 70 years of combined experience in serving community children. Organized as an educational, non-profit corporation, and operated by a Board of Trustees made up of school parents.

PIFS is licensed by the State of Connecticut and accredited as a program of excellence by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). In the spring of 2016, PIFS became a Connecticut Green LEAF School.

We ALSO now offer both half- and extended-day classes depending on the age of child.
