Enrolling now for our 2020-2021 school year.  

Located in Fairfield County Connecticut, our Westport, CT preschool has been  part of the fabric of this community for almost 50 years.  We are centrally located in a picturesque New England setting in downtown Westport and attract families from Westport, as well as surrounding towns.

Saugatuck Nursery School is best described as a hybrid.  We are a traditional nursery school with the option of before and after school care for our 3 and 4 year olds.  Flexible scheduling allows for sign up, on an as needed basis, for early drop off, lunch bunch.  

Programs for 2 Year Old, 3 Year Old and 4 Year Old Children

Our students thrive in the warm and nurturing environment that our seasoned and professional teachers provide.  

Our curriculum, which is modeled after the Early Learning Developmental Standards, allow us to individualize our teaching strategies to include all children.  Students are observed and scaffolded to their next level of development in a play-based, hands on method.  Our practices dovetail smoothly into the Common Core curriculum at the elementary school level.  

All children leave Saugatuck Nursery School with the life skills and academic acumen that prepare them for success in their next

Meet Our Family


"Saugatuck Nursery School is a remarkable school. As a child's first step into education, there is nothing more a parent could ask for. The teachers, and director, are experienced, creative and a delight to work with."

In The Groove!

The turbulent waters on the first leg of our new journey are calming and it looks like smooth sailing is ahead! 

The group will also enjoy a field trip to Ambler Farm in Wil- ton. We’ll take a yel- low school bus and have a chance to go on a hay ride, harvest pumpkins and wind through a hay maze. We invite 2 parents per class to chaper- one, on a first-serve, first-come basis.

Our next social gather- ing will be on Thursday, October 24th from 4-7. See Director’s newsletter for details.
