Help equip our Grauer Preschool with a robust, hardwood play kitchen set to stimulate crucial developmental play!
At Family Centers, we believe dramatic play helps:
- facilitate learning in young children
- children act out what they see and better understand the world around them
- encourage positive social-emotional development
- foster children’s imagination and problem-solving skills
The Grauer Preschool is one of Family Centers’ four preschool sites accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The facility, originally opened in 1907, was Greenwich’s first preschool. Later, it became the first preschool in town to offer full-day services to accommodate working mothers during World War II.
While it was affectionately known as the Arch Street Preschool for years, the school never had a formal name until 2016, when it was renamed The Grauer Preschool. Learn more about The Grauer Preschool here: http://familycenters.org/The-Grauer-Preschool-Opening
