Educational Playcare was established in 1986 to provide full and part-time educational childcare programs and summer camp 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, we are still able to offer all of the benefits of the large “corporate” daycares and more! Visit our “What Makes Us Different” section to learn more about these services.
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 have mission statements and we live them every single day!
Our philosophy encompasses more than just the care that we provide to the children. It’s also about the service that we provide to our families and the experience that we provide to our employees. It’s best summed up:
Our Families and Their Children
“Our mission is to provide the children in our care with the highest quality developmental and educational programs in a nurturing, safe, and supportive environment and to facilitate and enrich the childcare experience of our families.”
“Our mission is to provide our employees with the highest quality workplace environment possible. We seek to provide our employees with the equipment, materials, and training to be among the finest providers of care for young children. Finally, we seek to provide each one with the opportunities to achieve his or her career goals in the field of Early Childhood Education.”
