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.

Three Year Olds
You have the option to register your three year old for either the half day OR full day program. There is a three day minimum of either program.
Four/Five Year Olds
If your four or five year old is new to a group setting and has never been in a preschool program before, they may do their first month in the half day program. This will ensure that they have adjusted to a new setting. After the first month, they must become full day students for at least two days of attendance. The other days may be half days if needed.
*Three year olds who turn four mid-school year must become full day students after their birthday.
The above requirements will apply in order to ensure that your child is as ready as can be for kindergarten. The two full day minimum applies, however, the closer your child becomes to becoming a kindergartener, the more full time your child should become in this program.

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.
