Our Creative Playtime Preschool Program is open to children ages 3-5, students for the 2023-2024 school year should turn 3 before December 31, 2023! The program is fully licensed through the State of Connecticut and follows the state’s Early Learning Standards. Our student gets to take advantage of being in one of the best locations in Newington, they play on the playground and walk around the pond at Mill Pond Park, visit the Lucy Robbins Welles Library, and play in the Mortensen Community Center Gymnasium on rainy days, plus our classroom is brand new! The Preschool is open daily from 7:30 am-5:30 pm. We hold a morning session from 7:30 am-12:00 pm, an afternoon session from 1:00 pm-5:30 pm, and a full-day session from 7:30 am-5:30 pm.
