Putnam Indian Field School

Putnam Indian Field School 2014-15

At the Putnam Indian Field School, we create conditions in which discoveries take place. Most important among our conditions is the teamwork of an extraordinary staff. Well-educated, experienced and caring, our teachers foster the secure and happy climate for which we are known-a climate that helps children make the transition from home to school with confidence. Complementing the work of our staff is our bright, superbly equipped schoolhouse in lovely surroundings. 

 "It's hard to believe a dozen years have passed since our youngest child graduated from PIFS. So many of our close friends - and happy memories - come from our time at the school. We also believe that our children's success in elementary, middle and secondary school stemmed from their education at Putnam. They truly became "lifelong learners" at PIFS, and we are forever grateful to your incredibly talented and dedicated staff for giving them such a great start."

PIFS Summer Camp ages 2 1/2 ~ 5 years old.  Putnam Indian Field School's summer camp for nursery age children is located at our wonderful school campus in Greenwich, CT serving both Fairfield and Westchester County. Putnam Indian Field School is a special place with exceptional teachers, full of friendships, warmth and exciting learning experiences. We accept 2 1/2 year - 5 year old children.
