The Putnam Indian Field School is an independent, co-educational preschool for children from toddler through Pre-K years. Established as the result of a merger in 1978 between two well-known Greenwich nursery schools, the school represents over 70 years of combined experience in serving community children. Organized as an educational, non-profit corporation, and operated by a Board of Trustees made up of school parents, PIFS is licensed by the State of Connecticut and accredited as a program of excellence by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). In the spring of 2016, PIFS became a Connecticut Green LEAF School.
PIFS provides an early childhood educational experience that will ignite a love of learning and inspire children to:
- Be creative and critical thinkers
- Have a positive self-image
- Bravely take risks
- Embrace diversity
- Feel responsible for themselves and their world
- Be good friends
