Five Mile River Nursery School was privileged to be the first nationally accredited preschool under the new assessment standards in Connecticut, and one of the first 17 in the nation. We offer 2's, 3's, 4's and 5's Preschool programs, and in 2020, we are hosting a Kindergarten Cohort!  Enrichment programs and Summer Camp. Our mission at Five Mile River Nursery School is to provide a warm, nurturing, and engaging atmosphere allowing children to be creative and adventurous learners. Our school focuses on the development of the whole child: intellectual, social-emotional, moral, creative and physical. Our goal is to inspire self confidence, curiosity and a love of learning.  REGISTER for 2021/2022 NOW!



Our second children's service day was scheduled for March 18th 9:30-11:30.  We were to have assembled school kits to send to displaced children all over the world!  But we had to support this cause monetarily instead.  Look for more opportunities to serve our world wide community! And thank you for your donations to support our efforts!


FMRNS opened for Summer June 15 through August 15th and are open for preschool and kindergarten right now.  There is one space available in our 5s program starting January and two in our Kindergarten cohort starting immediately.  Contact us for more information!
