We have been more than happy with our experience at St Pauls for our 2 kids. Our oldest went through kindergarten and had such amazing teachers that really helped her cultivate a love of reading and learning. At the same time, she has learned about respect and moral values. Our youngest is in the 4's and he just loves going to school each day! I feel secure and thankful that my kids are learning and growing each day under the special care of these wonderful teachers. After visiting a few other preschools, I am so happy that we chose St Pauls. I am an alumni myself and I can honestly say that it is the best school. I encourage others to take a look and see for themselves. They will see what a treasure it is.

My son is a second generation attendee of St. Paul and just finished his second year. He has continued to grow both socially and cognitively and arrives and leaves with a smile. All of the teachers and support staff are loving and caring individuals and I feel comforted each day that he is in such a nurturing environment.

We came to St Paul's for our son's Pre-K year. We saw ourselves utilizing the program as an academic and emotional bridge from his last preschool to his kindergarten year at private school...a one year deal. We had no idea that the school would very quickly come to feel like a second home to our son and a second family to the rest of us. The teachers couldn't have been more creative, stimulating and nurturing in their teaching, and our son grew more academically AND emotionally/socially than we have ever thought possible. We are so grateful for the time and energy spent by all to help our son transition to a new school and to welcome our entire family to a new community. It was such a tremendous experience that we have now decided to not only keep our son there for his kindergarten year but also to enroll our daughter in the 3's program. We are thrilled that we have more years left to enjoy and participate in the gem that is St. Paul!!!! - Maggie B.

My 3rd child is now attending St Paul's and we are so happy at this school. The entire staff are warm and caring. My children have learned so much while attending the school. Not only about Abc's and 123's. But about kindness, compassion, forgiveness, helping each other. They also incorporate music, science, art, and Spanish into their program. I was amazed to hear my 3 year old counting and singing in Spanish. I can't say enough great things about this school, it is amazing!

My husband and I have both grown up in the area and never knew that such a gem as St. Paul's Christian School existed. My son came to the school from another preschool in Westport which were not very happy with. I started touring different schools, about 12 to be exact. Finally, we came to St. Paul's from a family suggestion. Immediately, we were welcomed into the school with loving arms both by the teachers, and the parents and children. As a stay at home mom I was really looking for a school with a strong fundraising base and parent involvement. I also wanted a school that had the best accrediations and wild have a great learning curriculum for my children. I found that all at St. Paul's Christian School. Right off the bat we were invited to a BBQ to kick-off the new school year, then came boys night out and the father daughter dance, moms night out, Spring Fling fundraiser and touch a truck. In addition, all throughout year there are so many events planned to really make you and your child/children feel like they are part of a frat community. We were extremely blessed to have found St. Paul's Christian School and they have already made a profound effect on our lives. It's my hope that everyone be as lucky as we are to have St. Paul's and its counterparts as a lasting memory for our family.

St. Paul Christian School is phenomenal! We moved to Westport from the Midwest and instantly started touring preschools for my two boys. Within our first week in town I met 4 friendly familes who recommended St. Paul's. It's a warm, loving environment with strong academics. My boys have loved playing while learning and have built friendships that will last! I strongly recommend the school and will be sending my third child when she's 2!

Great preschool. I researched and visited many preschools in the area and found St Pauls to fit everything on my checklist. It has been a amazing first year, I am always saying that I couldn't be happier that we made the decision to send my son to the two's program. He enjoyed every second of it and is excited to go into the threes next year. A really great experience for first time preschool parents! All of the teachers and parents were so helpful and nice. I would recommend SPCS to anyone!

My family and I moved here from North Carolina and heard about St. Paul Christian School from my husband's co-worker. We toured a total of five preschools for our children and have to say we are very satisfied with the choice we made at St. Paul Christian School. We weighed several factors in selecting a preschool and St. Paul Christian School came out as not only the best overall school, but the best nurturing environment for our transitioning children from North Carolina. My three-year old son had such an easy transition to his new school mid-year he would often run down the hallways just to get to his new classroom. His teachers were so warm and welcoming that it instantly felt like home. Upon selecting SPCS as our new preschool, my other son received welcome mail from his future classmates and teachers. On the day of our arrival there was a huge banner with his name on it which made him feel so special. The teaching staff is top notch, and the school administration is very proactive. This school takes a mind body and spirit approach to lifelong learning which I value and I can see the values being instilled in my boys. I would highly recommend this school to newcomers in Westport and Fairfield- you cannot go wrong!

We came to St. Paul's two years ago mid-year and new to Connecticut. My son was immediately welcomed and instantly comfortable in the classroom. My second child started in the Mommy and Me and now my third is doing the same. Nobody has shed a tear on any day about not wanting to go to school. The teachers are so nurturing. It is truly their mission to teach and care for the children. It is a play based approach that facilitates a love of learning and a positive school experience. The religious aspect is age appropriate and focused on loving each other, God's love for us and classic Bible stories. There are extended day options, as well as a two week camp. As a mom new to town, I found the community of parents so welcoming. There are several school sponsored Mom's Night Outs, a Boys Night Out for male students and dads, Daddy Daughter Dance, coffees, a fundraising gala etc. I've made what I'm sure are life long friends here!

We can't say enough about St. Paul Christian School! Our first child went from the 2's - Pre-K at SPSC, our second just started this year, and our family just loves every teacher that our children have had. The school is such a loving, nurturing environment, while being academically challenging. Coming out of Pre-K our child was ready for the challenge of full-day Kindergarten. From the Director, to all the wonderful families at the school, it is a great place! Our children (and family) feel and learn about God's love for them there - what more could you want!

My son has grown very independent since starting at St. Paul Christian school. He looks forward to playing with his friends each day and speaks highly of his teachers. My son's language skills have noticeably increased and his vocabulary has grown ten fold. As a family, we have enjoyed the different activities offered to keep us involved and have met many friendly parents. We look forward to seeing our son grow in such a warm and loving environment.

St. Paul Christian School is an excellent preschool and has provided an amazing experience for our two children. Our son spent 4 years at the school, through kindergarten, and excelled beyond our expectations. The teachers and program director are highly experienced (with very little staff turnover at the school) and very nurturing to the students, as well as a wonderful resource for parents. The facilities are top notch, with smartboards, computers, and IPAD technologies incorporated, in addition to traditional classroom activities. The overall school community is very caring. And we've really enjoyed getting to know the other parents. This school is one of the best in the area - highly recommend!

St. Paul's is a wonderful preschool all around. I found that the teachers are very nurturing and provide great opportunities for the children to learn and interact with each other. I've had two children go through this preschool and I was always very impressed.

The kindergarten teacher and program is fabulous. The classroom is small, intimate and just what is needed as a transition from preschool to elementary school. The kindergarten program is accredited, so, if the child is ready, first grade is an option when moving on to elementary school. The kindergarten teachers were just amazing! I didn't find a lot of opportunities for moms to network outside of their immediate classroom...so, if you are new to the area, that could be a downside. There are several fundraising events, but not a lot of emphasis on "friend-raising"...There are opportunities to get involved, but "real" friendship building opportunities didn't exist - be prepared to reach out on your own.

Our son is finishing his first year at SPCS and has had a great experience. The 2's teachers (Mrs. K and Mrs. H) are very loving and passionate about teaching and providing individual attention to each of the kids. All the activities are fun but also serve as age appropriate learning methods. We have also learned a lot from them. Our son has developed so much and really enjoys going to school. Our language at home is primarily mandarin and we worried about our son's ability to interact with and understand the teachers and his classmates, but it hasn't been a problem at all and he is thriving and continuing to grow. All in a place that shares the love of God everyday with leadership from a very committed and experienced Mrs. Troup. We recommend.

We were new to Westport last year, and we feel so lucky to have found this amazing school. As a prior teacher and parent of two young children, I see very valuable life-long learning taking place through fun and engaging activities. My daughter loves her school. Optional "lunch bunch" activities after the regular program offer students a chance to play/learn with others who are younger/older than they are. These programs are focused by subject, such as Spanish, cooking, performing arts, etc. The parents in this school are also so welcoming and their involvement is very strong and supportive of both working and non-working parents. Mrs. Lesley Troup, the director, is the best I ve met or worked with. She runs a very polished and professional program. Thank you St. Paul s! The Foxton Family

I have been sending my children to St. Paul Christian School for four years now. My first exposure to the school was the wonderful Kindergarten program. Then I had my middle child attend for the 3's and Pre Kindergarten program. And now my youngest has almost completed a year of the 2's program. I cannot say enough about the quality of the teachers at this school. Every year I feel so blessed that my children have been a part of this wonderful community. The teachers are all amazing. And it all starts at the top with the Director Lesley Troup. She sets the tone for the school and is very available to all of the families. It is a wonderful nurturing environment that really set's the stage for your child's independence and growth. Can't say enough about this special place.

What a wonderful, nurturing school with a strong Christian standard. This school offers the highest standard in early education for preschool children. Our child was well prepared and ahead in some areas for elementary school. St Paul Christian School is the best kept secret in Westport!

I cannot say enough about St Paul's. I had heard about it for several years from a friend who sent her two boys there. Amazingly talented, well educated and loving teachers. Their enthusiasm for their job is impressive. Our children are learning and having fun. We couldn't be happier. Thank you St. Paul's team!

I am so happy that a friend of mine recommended SPCS to me. I have had 2 children attend and no doubt my 3rd one will go when he is old enough for the mommy and me when he turns 2. The teachers are the greatest and the director and all the staff provide a nurturing, friendly and comfortable environment for both the kids and the parents. My oldest was ahead of his class when he went to public school after attending SPCS, and the Westport schools are great, so there's a lot to be said for what they do at SPCS. And they don't drill academics into the children, but rather prepare them to integrate into elementary school being confident, well behaved and academically prepared to learn. I can't say enough great things about SPCS.

Having moved here from New York City, I was thrilled to be introduced to SPCS by a friend. The entire staff from the school's director, teachers and office staff are warm, nurturing and knowledgeable about the needs of parents and their children. It's one of the only schools in the area that offers classes beginning with Mommy and Me and running through to Kindergarten. Since it's an accredited program, you can be assured that the education your child receives will be creating a strong foundation for years to come. Truly a hidden treasure among our areas preschools!!!

All of my children have gone to St. Paul Christian School and I cannot say enough good things about it. St. Paul's provides a warm & nurturing environment for preschoolers and kindergarteners while also providing them with a strong educational foundation. The facilities are wonderful, with large, inviting classrooms. The school's director and teachers are loving and dedicated and truly embody the Christian values that underlie the school's curriculum.

SPCS is Fairfield County's best kept secret for pre school education. It uniquely blends early childhood developmental education and play with positive Christian values and teaching. Its teachers are committed and excellent, the facilities are exciting, and the study body is joyful (about 120 kids strong. Add to it a NAEYC accredidation, and SPCS rises to the top of 2 years through Kindergarten schools

I can already grade this school very much below par, and that even before having sent our child to the first day of the new school year. The enrollment procedures are very much to be desired, and one should have serious doubts regarding the 'values' this school is supposed to adhere to, i.e. being preached in their speeches and brochures. A most disappointing experience !
