Our History

Ridgefield Community Kindergarten was established in 1959 as a private non-profit nursery school.  RCK, as it is fondly referred to by its community of families, offers a warm and nurturing environment that encourages children to learn through play and experimentation. 

RCK is located in the heart of Ridgefield, nestled on the St. Stephen's Episcopal Church campus. The bright and inviting classrooms feature open-classrooms with a cheerful and academically rich environment.

Our philosophy is to help children develop skills to the best of their abilities so they can take pride in what they know and what they can do. We are dedicated to assisting each child in finding a comfortable and contributing place in his or her own group.  Our goal is to enrich the whole child - physically, emotionally and intellectually.


We foster independence, social development - sharing, self-mastery, conflict resolution - and early literacy and mathematical skills. We place special emphasis on developing respect for oneself and others.
