Our Story

In 1970, Reverend Vardell Swett began his long tenure as the minister of the Terryville Congregational Church. Reverend Swett noted the need for a quality preschool to serve our community. In 1971, Terry Nursery School opened its doors to the children of Plymouth and the surrounding towns.  

Our Goals

Terry Nursery School, Inc. is designed to help in the guidance and development of your child.


You, as a parent or guardian, are truly your child's first and most important teacher. It is our purpose to offer additional experiences that will broaden your child's educational and personal growth.


We provide your child the opportunity to experiment with various creative materials aimed at developing an appreciation of art, nature, music, science and the community around us.


Learning how to be a friend, working and playing together, and being able to talk and listen to others are some of the skills that we help your child practice. We look forward to working with you to build your child's abilities and self-confidence.
