Educational Playcare

555 Day Hill Rd, Windsor, CT

Costimate: $182/wk

Today, the importance of positive childhood experiences, starting from infancy, and their relation to future success in life is universally understood. It wasn't so when we began in 1986. When we originally selected the name "Educational Playcare", it was because of our understanding of the importance of play in order for learning to take place. We also knew the importance of providing a nurturing, secure, joyful and stimulating environment.

Children learn best through direct experience. We believe that this direct experience is best gained through play, for play is the work of children. It is through play that children develop concepts about themselves and the world around them. Our goal is to provide the ideal environment to support the "work" of children.

Educational Playcare was established in 1986 to provide full and part-time childcare and educational programs in Connecticut for children from 6 weeks to 12 years old. We are proud of our reputation as the provider of the highest-quality childcare, nursery school, and preschool programs for children that can be found anywhere. We've maintained our high standards with the quality control that comes from being small and owner operated.

Despite our relatively small size, however, we are still able to offer all of the benefits of the large "corporate" child care centers and more!

It has been our privilege to provide childcare services to thousands of families in Connecticut. In fact, some of our previous students have come back to work for us and help nurture the next generation!

"WE ARE SEEKING CAREGIVERS TO WORK IN OUR MONTESSORI SETTING. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BEING PART OF A BEAUTIFUL AND DIVERSE COMMUNITY!"
The Montessori Method, based on the highly successful theories of Marie Montessori, is taught in 125 countries in 22,000 schools. The goal of a Montessori education is to graduate students with a vision of what the world can be and the wherewithal to lead and accomplish that mission. The children's inherent "love of learning" is encouraged by giving them opportunities to engage in spontaneous, meaningful activities. Montessori students use hands-on materials to explore and discover. Through their work, the children develop concentration, motivation, persistence and discipline. Montessori classrooms are multi-age with three age groupings: primary, ages 3-6; lower elementary, ages 6-9; and upper elementary, ages 9-12. Based on the 2011-12 enrollment data, the school meets the state integration standard.
