Pixie Pre-School started in 1970 after the Spotswood Reformed Church constructed a new
Education Building. Since the building would be unused during the week it was decided
that since there was no pre-school in town, that this would be a wonderful match for the
space. The original plan was to have one class of eighteen students, three mornings a week.
Within a short time, the class was full and expanded to be five days per week, mornings and
afternoons. Before the school opened in September of that year, it was necessary to employ
another teacher and aid for another class room. Within two years there were four classrooms
in use and the school was open five days a week with morning and afternoon sessions.
A few years later, a second site was needed to accommodate all of the children who were
registered. A second location was found in East Brunswick at Trinity Presbyterian Church.
Eventually, the school grew to over 500 students in morning and afternoon classes.
In the 1990s, with more and more demand for all day child care, the school began all day
classes for three and four year olds with before and after care. A natural out growth of this
was the establishment of a Kindergarten in the Church annex in Spotswood and a summer
program. Pixie is now open year round and accommodates children two years to six years of
age with bussing available to the surrounding area.
The school has always prided itself in having certified teachers and a well trained staff, with
low turnover. Pixie Pre-School and Kindergarten has now been open for over 40 years,
maintaining high standards with an excellent educational base.
