Child Care Center

SCHOOL YEAR 2018-2019 REGISTRATION WILL OPEN JANUARY 1ST, 2018. 

DAILY SCHEDULE

*We have "A" Weeks and "B" weeks for our Farm Animal Learning Center schedule. We make the learning center part of our schedule 3x per week. On days that we do not go in the barn, we do a theme related craft or activity. We do not do crafts/activities on days that we include the barn in our schedule as we are becoming a more play-based center.

8:30-9:30: Free Play
9:30-10:15: Circle Time (story, show & tell, Spanish and sign language)

Per the state regulation, we must provide a quiet time for programs that last more than 5.5 hours. After discussing with past customers, we found that at home, most allow their children downtime consisting of laying down, watching tv or doing something quietly. We try to make our environment as close to that as possible. Our quiet time can consist of watching a movie/tv, coloring, puzzles, playdough, or anything else that can be done quietly OR children may nap in our quiet room. We understand not all preschoolers take a nap, so we can accommodate parents who choose either a nap or quiet time.

PRESCHOOL 2017-2018 REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

School Year: 8/30/2017-6/13/2018

We track children's daily progress. You have access to your child's folder at all times. The daily write up may consist of a description of your child's day overall, educational progress, their social interactions, problems they may have experienced, activities, games and/or important parent information. 

Our teachers are dedicated to caring for, nurturing and educating all children enrolled in our preschool program. Our curriculum is aligned with preschool framework that the state provides us called CT ELDS. Each week we focus on one letter, sign language word and spanish word. In addition the preschool curriculum that we create, we teach kids responsibility through a variety of hands on, farm-based activities that take place in our Farm Animal Learning Center on a daily basis. 

*The following changes will be reflected for the school year or 2018-2019:
