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 hope it provides you with the information you need to find the preschool that meets your family’s needs.

We are pleased that Sylvia Walsh, an experienced educator with years of teaching and school administration experience, has joined FCCNS as Interim Director for 2020-2021.

We have re-opened our school as of September 14, following state guidelines and extensive COVID-safe protocols, including HEPA-filter air purifiers in each classroom, and a strict regimen of cleaning and sanitizing. Please review the documents below for details, and contact us if you have any questions.

We have a few spaces available for Fall 2020, so please contact Sylvia Walsh if you are interested in enrolling your child.
