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” daycares 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!

Educational Playcare’s Preschool programs provide a variety of learning experiences with activities and thematic units that range from science and math to art and language. Some of the skills your child will be working on in our preschool programs include problem solving, conflict resolution, making predictions and becoming independent through the development of self-help skills. We also engage in circle time each day during which we talk about the weekly theme, share stories and songs, and expand our learning as a group. In addition to these more traditional preschool activities, all children participate in our Kindermusik, Yoga and Fitness & Dance Programs. Swim, Dance, Karate and other extra-curricular activities are available depending upon the location.

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 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.
