Newcomers eKit: Get Signed Up & Squared Away

Get Signed Up & Squared Away

A critical part of getting settled in to your new life in Darien is making sure you’re signed up for the various stickers, passes, permits and so forth that will be necessary (or helpful) to you moving forward.  We’ve done our best to bottom line them for you, here.

The Town Hall

School Registration

For additional information about Darien Public Schools programs, etc, refer to the “Schools Scoop” section of this guide.

Clubs & Social

  • You’ve probably already been urged by your realtor and new neighbors to join the Newcomer’s Club at the YWCA Darien/Norwalk, but if you haven’t, let us be the ones to urge you to do so!  Between the ladies’ night mixers, book clubs and organized get-togethers through offshoots including Wine Taster’s Club, Gourmet Group and Internationals Club, there’s something for everyone here.  We hear time and again from seasoned residents that their greatest friendships began “through Newcomer’s” – so we hope you’ll get signed up ASAP!
  • Whether you enjoy gardening or running or skiing or local politics or technology, you’re sure to find an opportunity you’ll love by perusing this list of local clubs, organizations and volunteer opportunities in town.
  • For more information about opportunities to socialize, don’t miss our Make New Friends section!

Youth Athletics & Enrichment Programs

Check out the following Darien-based not-for-profits that offer exceptional (and very popular!) outside-of-school enrichment programs and activities for kids (and in many cases, adults too!) Although some of the programs require registration during a specific timeframe, many of them offer ongoing enrollment – so it’s worth a call if you find some you like.  Click the names below to be taken directly to their program brochure and/or info pages online.
