About the Preschool

art216Century 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.

Century Nursery School is a State of Connecticut licensed school for 3 and 4 year old children.  We are both non-denominational and non-profit – keeping our focus on care and education rather than differences and revenues. Each January, Century Nursery School holds an open house for prospective students.

We are staffed with three full-time teachers.  Classes are limited to twenty children each, therefore ensuring a 7 to 1 student/teacher ratio per class period.

Century Nursery School implements the “Creative Curriculum” as the academic structure of the school.  This is a theme-based curriculum that is changed every two weeks and utilizes a diverse group of activities.

Children are encouraged to explore art creatively with a variety of materials and processes.  They engage in music, cooperative and dramatic play and literature.  The computer, outdoor playscape and inside equipment are designed to exercise fine and gross motor skills.   These experiences allow the child to develop cognitively, emotionally, physically and socially.

We understand and respect the needs of all children.  The school’s staff and volunteer Board of Directors work hard at making Century Nursery School a wonderful place for children to learn and grow.

Century Nursery School is a “Peanut Free/Tree Nut Free” environment!
