Welcome to First Congregational Church Nursery School.

We are located in the heart of Darien, CT and have been serving children and their families since 1960. We offer a meaningful preschool experience for more than 100 children ages two to five that is favorable to growth and development.

Our school’s friendly and social atmosphere fosters a child’s feeling of self-respect, and helps develop self-confidence, respect and consideration for others. We invite you to peruse the site to check out our programs, our philosophy and our community. 

We have a few spaces available for 2020-21, and we are now taking applications for 2021-22.
