Stanwich School founder Pat Young comes to First Presbyterian

First Presbyterian Church Nursery School (FPCNS) recently named Pat Young as its new interim director.

FPCNS began its search for a new director back in April following Director Patricia Bria Case’s announcement to retire after 28 years of service and now Ms. Young will take the helm as the search continues.

The school praised Ms. Young for her more than 40 years of education experience, work that has covered two-year-olds to graduates from college.

She spent 17 years at Greenwich Academy in multiple roles including the head of the Lower School. Ms. Young may be best known as the founding head of the Stanwich School from 1998-2012.

“I am delighted to be back with the little ones and to have an opportunity to be part of this wonderful institution so lovingly cared for by Pat Case. We are getting ready for a spectacular year as we begin the next chapter in this school’s honored history,” Ms. Young said.

Nursery School community Interim Senior Minister Stephen W. Plunkett praised Ms. Young as a “veteran educator” and said, “We look forward to her many years of experience enriching the lives of the children and families involved in the Nursery School. We feel fortunate and deeply blessed to have Pat in her interim role. The school is in very capable hands.”

FPCNS said it “could not be more honored to have such a distinguished director, educator, and mentor to guide the school forward into this upcoming school year.” The Director Search Committee will continue its role in looking for a permanent school director.

First Presbyterian Church Nursery School, founded in 1959, educates students from ages two through Pre-Kindergarten level.

“The purpose of the First Presbyterian Church Nursery School is to design and implement a program that meets the cognitive, social, and emotional needs of our community of children,” the school said in a press release. “Our program is an outreach of the First Presbyterian Church of Greenwich.”
