Educational Playcare was awarded the 2019 Top Workplaces honor by The Hartford Courant, making this the fourth consecutive year we have received this award. The Top Workplaces list is based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Workplace Dynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of our workplace culture were measured, including the alignment of our company and employee goals, our work execution, and our employee connections, just to name a few.
“We can’t think of a single accomplishment or award that means more to us than this. Early childhood teachers are the most under-appreciated teachers in the country, and it is our privilege to provide them with an exceptional work environment. We thank all of them for honoring us with this award.” says founders, Jane Porterfield & Gerald Pastor.
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.
Educational Playcare takes pride in being the best early childhood program in the area and we only hire the best staff for our centers.
