Preschool and Child Care in Ellington
Also Serving Families in Somers, Enfield, Tolland & Surrounding Communities
In 2018, we opened our beautiful, state-of-the-art school at 137 West Road in Ellington. Our Ellington school reflects all of the positive components we have learned about early childhood education over more than 30 years of providing exceptional child care services.
Our center in Ellington is a beautiful facility with oversized classrooms. The classrooms benefit from wonderful natural lighting and colorful interior features. Surrounding the building are spacious playgrounds, providing the children with ample space to enjoy the outdoors while developing their large muscle skills.
We take security seriously. Our Ellington school utilizes facial recognition technology to ensure that only authorized individuals are able to enter the building. In addition, security cameras in each classroom and play area allow all activities in our school to be monitored. We also have strategically placed panic buttons that link us directly to the local police department in the event of an emergency.
As you walk through our front door, you will be welcomed by a large and bright reception area. Here you will be greeted by our Director or Assistant Director and offered a complimentary cup of coffee or tea. Along the hall outside our infant classrooms, you’ll find our “Car Seat Ports,” where parents can leave their child’s car seat or carrier each day for convenience.
Walking through the corridors, you will notice our beautiful and brightly lit classrooms. All of our classrooms have been designed to be very child-centered, right down to the tiniest detail.
Our classrooms are enormous and provide much more space than the minimum requirements for Connecticut classrooms. Each one is divided into activity centers that range from Science and Math, to Music and Movement, and from Building and Construction to Literacy and Dramatic Play.
In addition to the classrooms, our school also has a large indoor gross-motor room, which provides the children a place to play even when the weather won’t allow us to go outside. We also use it for our Arts and Enrichment classes.
We have a professional kitchen, too. Parents love that we provide nutritious lunches, as well as two snacks each day, and the menu is very child friendly!

Any concern about a child care center we had has become a distant memory thanks to EPC.
My daughter loves go to EPC every day! It’s a great feeling knowing that she is being taken care of.
