The groundwork for successful experiences in the education system is largely established before Kindergarten even starts. Choosing the right school for our children is a big decision and we know that it can feel overwhelming. As you consider the learning environment, teaching style and school philosophies that best suit your child, Rye and Rye Brook Moms has all of the information and resources all in one place.

Scroll down to take a look at some of the choices in and around Rye and Rye Brook!

Community Synagogue of Rye


At Community Synagogue, we believe the purpose of an early childhood program is to provide a sensory rich environment where children feel safe to explore, experiment and ask questions. We offer children technology free experiences that feed their senses and support mindfulness for themselves and the world around them. Communication and language are crucial to a child’s education and are key in supporting early literacy. Equally important to our program is the development of social and emotional skills and the understanding of kindness, empathy and community. Universal human values are woven into our curriculum in ways that can be appreciated and understood by young children. Our goal is to provide a strong foundation that the children and their families can carry with them to elementary school and beyond.

Greenwich Catholic

Greenwich Catholic School’s PreK 3 and PreK 4 Programs are unique in many  ways. Our curriculum fosters all areas of a child’s development. We balance small and large group learning, structured and independent activities, small and large motor play as well as quiet time. Our preschool children are fully  integrated in our school family. They take part in many of Greenwich Catholic’s enrichment classes such as gym, music, foreign language and art. We use effective teaching approaches that are also developmentally, culturally and linguistically appropriate for young children.

Children come to GCS to become independent, self confident learners.
