WESTPORT, Conn. For the next 18 months, students and staff of Westports Saugatuck Nursery School will call First Church of Christ, Scientist, home. The school, left homeless after the fire at Saugatuck Congregational Church last November, reopened Wednesday at First Church.
The Planning and Zoning Commission approved a special permit last month that allows the nursery school to function out of First Church, located at 55 Compo Road S., for 18 months. Thats how long Saugatuck Church officials told nursery school Director Ellen DeHuff it will be until the church is ready.
The Westport Weston Family Y provided short-term accommodations to the nursery school after the fire, until a longer-term temporary space was found.
