Revamping Preschool Programming

We are in the process of revamping all early childhood programming, and at the forefront is our amazing Kids Kamp summer camp for children three to six years of age. This seven-week theme-based summer camp has been a great success, and we look forward to recreating our Kids Korner program to rival our preschool camp. From nature and art based curriculums, to age appropriate science projects, Kids Korner will have it all.

Part of these changes include working within the parameters of Connecticut State Statutes for Education to align both staff and curriculum standards to bring our Kids Korner program to the level of excellence we believe our children deserve.
