Exceptional Bristol Preschool Since 1953.

Century Nursery School was established in 1953 and has a long-standing reputation of providing a high quality preschool education for children in Bristol and surrounding towns. Our school and its cheerful classrooms are nestled behind the First Congregational Church on top of historic Federal Hill in Bristol, Connecticut. Come see what has made us the standard by which other area preschools are measured.

Why Choose Century?

Class size is limited to 20 children each, ensuring a maximum 8 to 1 student/teacher ratio for each class.
This involves using themes to implement developmentally appropriate practice in our classroom. Developmentally appropriate practice provides students with opportunities to learn and practice newly acquired skills and offers challenges beyond the level of their present mastery within the classroom.
From arrival to dismissal the teachers watch over the students while they learn and have fun in a clean and friendly environment.  Children must be accompanied into the building at the start of each class. The door remains locked throughout the day.
Looking to 2020-2021
