Plantsville Community Nursery School is non-denominational and is the oldest continually operational nursery school in the state with classes for 3-5 year olds. We have communicated with Southington kindergarten teachers to make sure our program meets the best needs of children to prepare them for their next big step into elementary school.
Opened in October 1955 by the mothers club of Plantsville Congregational Church, the nursery school began with Mrs. Ruth Nelson, Mrs. Helen Macleod and Mrs. Otley Kania teaching 16 children in the 4 year old class and 17 children in the 3 year old class. Each year the teaching staff has provided children in Southington and surrounding towns with an educational experience that will prepare them for entering kindergarten.
Over the years the program has improved to provide the best up to date experience for each child in socialization, self-reliance, cognitive skills, fine and gross motor skills and improving imagination while still caring for the basic needs of 3-5 year olds. We are proud that in the 55+ years we have been in operation, we have had only 28 teachers, reflecting a low turnover rate that has helped to keep consistency throughout our program.
