Methodist Nursery School is a non-sectarian nursery school sponsored by Fairfield-Grace United Methodist Church.  The school offers part-time programs for young children between the ages of 2 and 5 during the school year and a summer and winter camp. The school was founded in 1959 by Marge Schneider, who hired Antoinette (Tony) B. Suter as the first Director of the school, and is one of the oldest nursery school programs in Fairfield. The school continues its proud tradition of offering exceptional early childhood education with a focus on learning through play.

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.

But for children, play is serious learning.

Play is really the work of childhood.” 

Fred Rogers
