Our family has found a second home at Christ Church Preschool, where both our children have flourished thanks to the community's intentional support and unwavering dedication. As one of the most dynamic campuses in Greenwich, we sought out a community that would provide ample opportunities for our children to be challenged and nurtured through their early childhood development. With the Reggio framework at the heart of their approach, children are seen as capable, competent, and creative, and the bar for excellence is raised each year as our children progress through the program. We couldn't be more grateful for this community and its fabulous educators who take this work to the next level yearly.
I’d like to take a moment to share my experience of the CCNS Connecting class. We were fortunate to have both of our sons take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and because of this we have two years of positive memories to take from it. Both of my boys are very different and both thrived emotionally, mentally, physically and socially. They established a solid foundation of the educational system and have built upon some great experiences. When each child began Kindergarten they were on top of everything and ready for all to come!
We would highly recommend the Connecting program. It gave our son the time and tools to strengthen self confidence, build awareness and grow socially and emotionally. He was more than ready for Kindergarten.
Connecting was a wonderful experience for our 5 year old son. He enjoyed a great class dynamic led by amazing teachers which was a wonderful environment for him to grow socially. Now that he is halfway through kindergarten we have observed how strong Connecting was academically and reinforced our decision. We are excited for our daughter to experience Connecting next year!
When I first enrolled my two-year old daughter at CCNS she did not adjust well. As a first time parent, I was concerned and very seriously considered pulling her out of the program. During these first very tough weeks, the teachers and the administrators at CCNS were nothing short of extraordinary. They went the extra mile to make my daughter feel comfortable by providing her with personalized attention and care, which gave me the confidence to keep her enrolled. A short while later, my daughter can’t wait to go to school and she adores her classmates and teachers. I would strongly recommend this school and have seen firsthand that its teachers love what they do, care about each student, and strive to create a fun-filled educational environment each day.
We LOVE the 2’s program and couldn't be happier with our daughter’s amazing teachers Pam and Colleen. Livi has evolved so much since she started at ccns!
My son's birthday is in June, not to mention bright and mature, so I was hesitant to choose the Connecting year for him. What I was looking for was an extra year to build confidence and solidify his skills, so when he went on to a bigger classroom with less teacher support he would be able to independently and assuredly complete all the tasks presented to him. I ended up choosing this path after careful consultation with his 4s teachers, my husband, and endless amounts of research and reading on the topic. My decision to give him an extra year has been more than I could have expected. His confidence has grown and he has learned so much more than I could have imagined in a year. The small class size and supportive teacher dynamic allowed him to develop social and academic skills in addition to fostering his independence in ways that will affect his learning for many years to come, and for this I am very thankful.
I have had 3 children attend CCNS (my youngest is currently a student), and I can’t say enough great things about the school. My kids are very different from one another, yet they have each had their own amazing experiences. They all loved their teachers, and truly enjoyed going to school every day. There is a great parent community, and every single person who works at the school cares about you and your children. We couldn’t be happier!
I had each of my three sons attend the Connecting program at Christ Church. I am so happy I did! It was a wonderful, age appropriate year for each of them and gave just a little more time to develop and mature. They all have such happy memories of the Connecting years. There is simply no downside to the Connecting Program. My oldest two sons are now in 7th and 4th grades respectively and each is doing fantastic academically, leaders among their peers. My youngest son is now in Kindergarten, loves school and is absorbing everything without feeling overwhelmed. I highly recommend the Connecting program to anyone with a late birthday child. You will never regret it
We have loved our time at CCNS. The teachers, director, staff, and parents make up this wonderful community that you want to be a part of. My children can't wait to come to school each day. I think that says it all!
