The state nursery school of Pyla was founded and first operated in 1979. Originally, it was housed in a classroom of the Old Primary School which stood at the location of the present church of AgiosGeorgios. In 1996, after the decision for the construction of the church of AgiosGeorgios was made, a brand new Nursery School was built near the Primary School. Since then and characterised by the same enthusiasm, it has been offering children the necessary aids, skills and knowledge in a joyous environment. The nursery school aims at helping children adjust smoothlyto the wider school and social environment by offering them a holistic development in the best possible degree. The nursery school used to operate with only one form but in the past two years the number of pupils has risen and therefore the school today operates with two forms.

Lookingback, the State Nursery School used to be attended by 30 children in a building consisting of two rooms, which housed the Association Foinikas and the Nursery School respectively. The roof was covered in tiles, the door and windows were wooden and the floor was made of wooden boards. The yard had several trees and the fencing was stony. At this point we are going to mention an incident which was narrated to us by Mrs TasoulaIoannou, assistant at the Nursery School: “When the children at the Nursery School would eat citrus fruit, they would throw the fruit-stone under the floor boards and as a result one of them flourished and a tree grew right in the middle of the classroom, where the children used to gather by forming a circle. The pupils and their teacher would take care of the small tree so that it would grow. Unfortunately, later, when the Nursery School was renovated, everything changed and the favourite tree of the school was uprooted”.  

The Nursery School actively participates in all cultural and social proceedings of the community of Pyla. Thisissucceededthankstothe cooperation between the Nursery School’s management and the Parents’ Association, as well as with the constant support provided by the Community Council of Pyla.
