After receiving a glowing report at my son's Kindergarten Parent | Teacher Conference this fall, his teacher asked, "Where did your son attend preschool"?

I answered, "Greenwich Nursery School". Her response was, "I am not at all surprised. Children that come out of that program are always the best prepared to learn.".

Thank you, GNS, for giving my son such a tremendous start.



GNS is an amazing preschool experience for 3 & 4-year olds. I sent my daughter here and she absolutely loved it! This was her first formal school experience and it was phenomenal. She loved going to school each day.

The program GNS offers is a great experience that gives young children a chance to socialize, explore and learn with their peers in a safe, caring, nurturing environment. GNS allows children to learn through play - the #1 way that kids should learn. I found they gave the right mix of socialization and play skills, yet still meeting the needs of each child. The staff is highly knowledgeable and are there to help  your child learn and grow.

I highly recommend GNS to anyone searching for the perfect preschool program.


I had to write to compliment your school and also let you know how much I appreciate GNS, as a teacher and as a parent. I found it to be a rich learning environment, appropriate to the age group.

This is especially apparent to me now, after relocating, and visiting preschools in my new area. I finally settled on one which resembled GNS. You have set the new benchmark.

As an early childhood educator, I understand the importance of multiple learning components i.e. emotional, social and academic. I thank GNS for paying close attention to all facets equally.
