New Canaan Community Preschool
where play has a purpose

IMG 0335

New Canaan Community Preschool embraces the Project Approach to teaching, a constructivist philosophy that empowers children to take initiative, make choices and work collaboratively towards a goal.  By observing, understanding and supporting individual development, we create the foundation for lifelong learning. 

Our center-based classrooms encourage active exploration of math, science, language, art and social and emotional learning, all of which help to ensure a smooth transition from nursery school to kindergarten.  

Located within twelve acres of Kiwanis Park,  our school is structured to encourage curiosity, inspire creativity and build a strong sense of community.  Our classrooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase the beauty of our two playgrounds, nature path and organic garden. 

A non-profit organization, New Canaan Community Preschool has been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children since 1992.
