Who Are We And What Makes Us Different?

Kiddy Care is Licensed daycare facility, that is regulated by the state of Connecticut and inspected by state agents from the Department of Public Health & Day Cares. Our Capacity allows for up to 9 children at one time. Kiddy Care is an accredited Home Day Care, with the National Association for family Child Care.

Kiddy Care was founded in 1982 by Cecilia Montero, who developed her own vision of what she wanted child care to be for her own children and for the children in her care. She has designed a program based on the child development theory while also creating a relaxed, friendly atmosphere that promotes education, exploration,  discovery, creativity, achievement, happiness, and a sense of well-being in each child.

Facility

We have built a facility that has taken all the best aspects of a formal school facility and an at home atmosphere to make a comfortable, educational, fun, friendly environment for children of all ages.

There is a large indoor play area with age appropriate equipment designed specifically for young children. We are constantly updating the quality of our toys and equipment, always keeping the children’s needs in mind.

It is easy to get to Kiddy Care. We are located in a quiet neighborhood, set back from the road with plenty of lawn and a fenced-in play area with a playground, mud kitchen, cars, bikes, age appropriate toys and plenty of shade.

Program: Why are we so Special?

We are NOT an institution, we are a “Play-School”. Kiddy Care’s atmosphere is one in which your child will feel comfortable and secure because they are in a “Home away from Home”.  

  

At Kiddy Care, children are not grouped by age. You will see children of varying ages playing together in what is called “mixed aged groupings”. By being in a home environment and playing with children who they know as well as siblings, children feel comfortable and develop self-esteem. In our program, we provide opportunities to learn and grow, which helps parents grow in their rolls as well.

  

At Kiddy Care, each child is encouraged to interact with others, while maintaining their own independence. They participate in art, nature, science, games, active play, outdoor play and field trips. They are exposed at a very young age to a variety of activities, especially art and music.
   

In addition, we provide computer-based learning and foreign language instruction (Spanish & Italian), foreign language is introduced as early as possible through song, play and games.

We deeply believe that each child finds their strength and success through the play they do now.

Children

We accommodate children ages 12 weeks to 5 years old on a Full & Part time basis. Plus before and after school care for Pre-K through elementary schoolers.


INFANTS: 6 to 18 Months

Developing a feeling of security in an infant is our most important task. We offer a developmental environment, which is sensitive to the individual infant’s needs, with a nurturing atmosphere to encourage physical and emotional growth


TODDLERS: 18 to 36 Months

Children at the toddler stage learn to interact with peers and continue to explore and discover their world through their rapid development and establish a foundation for literacy and a lifelong love of learning. Our curriculum is carefully designed to meet each child’s individual needs because we believe that no child is too young to learn with developmentally appropriate activities


PRE-SCHOOLERS: 3 to 5 years old

Pre-schoolers are ready to plan and choose their activities, they make their own decisions when appropriate and express their feelings. Their choices help them understand their world. We help them learn by providing guidance and directing their natural curiosities to educationally enriching experiences through fun, hands-on activities


Before/After Schoolers: Pre-K - Elementary School Age

We offer care for children before and after school in addition to offering transportation to and from most local school districts.
