Temple Sholom Selma Maisel Nursery School

The Temple Sholom Selma Maisel Nursery School (SMNS) in Greenwich, CT, offers a rewarding, one-of-a-kind educational experience for families with children pre-school and younger. While our programs are guided by Jewish values, we welcome families of all faiths, ethnicities and backgrounds.


SMNS was founded in 1991 by Temple Sholom congregant Selma Maisel z'l. It was Selma's dream to create a pre-school that would provide a strong foundation for a lifetime love of learning. Today, we keep this vision central to our program by building skills and knowledge in an environment that holds kindness, mutual respect and cooperation as important values.


In the fall of 2018, the Selma Maisel Nursery School expanded to include a full-day option for children as young as six weeks old through pre-school. Both full-day and part-day programs (part-day is open to 2’s, 3’s and 4’s) are led by experienced and professional teachers and staff, and support an individualized approach to education and care.


At SMNS, we strive to stay on the cutting edge of early childhood education and have added unique learning spaces including a dedicated STEAM Lab, Gymnastics Studio, raised garden, and an outdoor STEAM playspace. Children take daily trips outside to the multi-level state-of-the-art playground with its own child-size town.


Children at SMNS enjoy the wonderful richness of Shabbat, Jewish holidays and traditions through music, stories and creative activities. We often draw on the resources of Temple Sholom’s clergy and professional staff, and all of our families are encouraged to participate in the Temple’s programming geared for young children and their parents.


We invite you to schedule a tour of our nursery school with David Cohen, Director of Schools, at 203-622-8121 or Please also connect with us on Facebook to see photos and videos from throughout the year.
