Our History

Gladys R. Silveira founded Silveira Kindergarten and Nursery School and celebrated her first graduation in June 1957. “Fun With Learning,” combined with a commitment to provide young children a secure, nurturing and structured environment, was her founding principle. In 1997, Theresa Silveira Spengler accepted a full-time Co-Directorship and joined her mother as a team teacher. In 1999, Mrs. Spengler became Director and Owner of Silveira Kindergarten and Nursery School.

Silveira Kindergarten & Nursery School offers an exciting early childhood education program that encourages a life long love of learning. We make education a family experience by nurturing and guiding your child to grow while discovering and exploring the world. Our curriculum combines tradition and research based best practices utilizing the RI Department of Education’s Early Learning Standards and the Common Core Standards for Kindergarten. We integrate structure with freedom of expression through play and hands on activities across our curriculum, our enrichment programs and opportunities for parent involvement. And we make school fun! Our teachers are caring educators and highly trained in their fields. As the oldest private preschool on Aquidneck Island, we have a proud tradition of offering our students a happy, clean, quality learning environment including our large open classrooms, a new gymnasium, a large fenced playground and over 20 acres of nature trails. Our curriculum is enhanced through local field trips, guest speakers, diverse events, science, music and language enrichment programs.
