St. Stephen's Nursery School Program

St. Stephen's Nursery School has been a leading Ridgefield, CT preschool for almost 50 years. We offer preschool classes for ages 3-5, and also exciting enrichment programs. We recognize that all aspects of a child's development are interwoven. Our stimulating, creative and hands on program addresses the whole child and fosters personal, social, cognitive, creative, physical and spiritual growth. Through developmentally appropriate classroom activities and creative projects children learn and grow.  Our professional and caring teachers love working with children, and It is our policy to exceed the state requirements for staff/child ratios for our Threes, Fours and TK Classes.
