OUR PRESCHOOL/ DAYCARE

Thank you for considering our school. For over 60 years we have served the community as one of the finest early childhood programs in our area.  The success of our program is due to a recognized teaching philosophy.

Our Mission Statement

To develop a strong sense of self-esteem and a positive attitude toward learning in young children. In a safe, nurturing atmosphere, we have designed a rich learning environment that allows your child to develop social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills at their own rate.

Staff

Our caring staff provides individual attention to assure feelings of security and belonging. Our staff of well qualified, loving teachers has extensive experience in early childhood care. We  participate in current workshops and courses to maintain our high-quality standards. All teachers are certified in CPR, First Aid and medication dispensing.

Our curriculum offers experiences in all areas of childhood development according to the  developmental milestones and benchmarks set forth by the state of Connecticut  and the office of early childhood.  Each day is filled with exciting, and stimulating activities to promote  positive social skills, language development and peer interaction. 

Children are exposed to  expressive and receptive language, science, math, art, and music through a combination of natural, informal, and structured activities. The focus is on the whole child, from 6 weeks to age 5.

Each day is filled with fun and exciting hands-on activities created to help stimulate your child’s natural curiosity and foster exploration and experimentation thus enhancing the creative abilities.

We have 2 spacious outdoor play areas that allow for more social interaction,  nature study, and development of gross motor skills. We go outside 2 times a day, weather permitting, and even in the winter. Children have the choice of developmentally appropriate equipment and toys to enhance their motor skills.

We even have a buggy for children who are not walking.

We also have a spacious indoor gym for active play when weather prohibits going outdoors.

Parent Involvement is an important part of our curriculum. We welcome and encourage the talents of parents to help us keep our program strong, interesting, and one that will benefit the children in all aspects of development. Parent readers, cooks, and classroom helpers are just a few ways you can become involved in your child's education. An open door policy is in place to enable parents to visit their child's class anytime.  (during COVID parental visitors are not permitted)

Special Events

Include: Polar Express Day, a Thanksgiving Feast, an Easter Egg Hunt,  Dr Seuss Week, and More!!!
