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.
We were hesitant about putting our child in daycare and we are so happy that we did! Our daughter started Educational Playcare at 6 months and it is the best decision we could have made. Both the staff and teachers have already become like family. We feel our daughter is gaining independence, social skills, and life lessons already. She is so happy to be there every morning when we walk in her classroom, you can tell she loves it and we do too! She does so much from sign language, to music, to arts and crafts; every day is something new and exciting! We are so thankful for Educational Playcare and look forward to having our daughter grow up there.
Wonderful teachers and staff! Everyone is supportive, kind, and knowledgeable.
This staff has the utmost professionalism. They are all very flexible and deal with challenges in a collaborative way. Would highly recommend!
The staff are friendly, professional and very attentive to my child. My daughter loves going to "school" and has had so many amazing experiences. She has learned so much at EPC and is really thriving! I love knowing that she's being loved and taken care of while I'm at work. I also love the healthy menu they serve and all of the extra programs-such as yoga, music class and quack pack. I'd definitely recommend Educational Playcare to other parents!
